Job Summary:
Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, new ideas have a way of becoming great products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Bring passion and dedication to your job and there's no telling what you could accomplish.

Do you love taking on big challenges without precedent? Do you possess a deep knowledge of the legal field and a passion for innovation? As a part of our Legal group, you’ll help uphold Apple’s high ethical and corporate standards, as well as defend our intellectual property. You’ll help provide legal support for all our products and businesses across the globe. Working for a company that invents entire categories and industries means you’ll be challenged to creatively apply your deep legal expertise to rare and often unexplored aspects of the law. Together with your team, you’ll provide the critical support needed worldwide for all Apple products and businesses.

We are looking for a patent litigator with great judgment and communication skills, and a demonstrated ability to manage the day to day progress of patent cases. You will be a self-starter who can quickly learn Apple's patent litigation docket and practices, identify and manage risks and exposures, and find strategic opportunities for resolution.


Key Qualifications:
•5-15 years of major law firm and/or in-house patent litigation experience.
•Strong technology interest and aptitude.
•Preference given to candidates who have significant trial experience
•Excellent communication, analytical, organization, and negotiation skills are essential


As a member of Apple's patent case management team, you will not be merely monitoring outside counsel. Rather, you will be directly engaged in formulating and driving strategy as well as providing counsel to internal clients on patent litigation matters and issues. The position requires a high degree of self-sufficiency, independent judgment and a trial-focused approach. You will operate as part of a supportive and fun team of lawyers, legal specialists and support staff who work closely together to protect Apple's interests.


JD degree or equivalent.
