Intellectual Property Paralegal Job Description

United States

'An intellectual property paralegal is someone who works on intellectual property law matters under the supervision of licensed attorneys. Because they are not licensed attorneys, intellectual property paralegals (also known as intellectual property legal assistants) do not practice law, but they help in many aspects of intellectual property matters, including those involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, and intellectual property litigation. Intellectual property lawyers are busy professionals and they rely on paralegals to assist them as much as possible in helping get the work done within the bounds of legal and ethical rules.
