We’re looking for a new or recently licensed attorney (in any state) to join our federal trademark practice. Preference will be given to applicants that are located on the west coast or otherwise can keep PST business hours.             

We’re not expecting you to have much or any trademark experience, however please spend some time reading to get a sense of what our substantive practice looks like. This is an area of the law that can be frustratingly subjective. Accordingly, persuasive writing skills are very important.   

Your primary responsibilities will be as follows:                       

  • formulating strategies in consultation with clients on how to best protect their brand                
  • clearing marks for registration and filing trademark applications                       
  • drafting substantive responses to the USPTO on Office Actions                     
  • responding to and drafting cease and desist letters and settlement agreement                       
  • ex parte appeals of refusals to register to the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board                   
  • keeping clients updated on the status of their filings and otherwise providing highly personable, engaging, and friendly client service     

Our clients are typically entirely new businesses consisting of 1-2 people and they vary considerably in their sophistication. We help a lot of mom & pop shops get started.            

This job is remote. Our entire team is geographically disbursed and we collaborate over Slack and Zendesk. During your training period, the plan is to spend 20 or 30 minutes every morning on a call discussing your files for the day. During the work day, the team is constantly messaging and calling one another over Slack, and when you mix in client calls, it is not an isolating environment. It’s very busy and fast paced.   

Our firm has always been focused on trademark law and has been in business since 2008. Since 2013 we have been among the top 10 filers of trademarks by volume in the U.S. and we continue to grow yearly. This is a full time 40 hour a week job. We offer a base salary plus a compensation model that is tied to the number of matters you work on.       

We are hoping to find someone who’s passionate about the idea of offering quality services that are accessible to new entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds. We are highly focused on customer service and our reviews reflect that.

We are looking to hire someone in the next several weeks. When applying please let us know your availability to start.
