To meet the increasing needs of our clients, as well as to expand our client base, Andrus hires both entry level and experienced intellectual property attorneys.
Our firm's procedures and management structure are customized to accommodate the specialized needs of the practice of intellectual property law in a boutique firm. For example, the attorneys at Andrus generally have engineering or science degrees and are registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The firm expects professionalism and does not compromise quality of legal services provided to its clients for any reason.
As a virtue of our firm’s location in Milwaukee, we are able to provide attorneys with an exciting and dynamic intellectual property practice, as well as the freedom to pursue a meaningful life away from the office. The office is located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee just a few blocks from the Federal Courthouse. Milwaukee is an extremely livable community conducive to family life. With reasonable living and housing costs, and a relatively short commute from the outlying suburban areas compared to other major U.S. cities.
Applicants should have at least two years of experience preparing, filing, and prosecuting patent and trademark applications, both in the US and abroad. Applicants should be adept at managing US and foreign patent and trademark dockets. Our paralegals have fully flexible schedules, with the opportunity to work from home or in our office as fits their needs. Salary and benefits are competitive.
Entry level attorneys receive individualized training by working closely with experienced, senior attorneys. It is part of our firm's culture for associates to work closely with senior attorneys to provide our clients with high quality service at a reasonable price. Entry level attorneys are normally exposed to patent and trademark prosecution, opinion writing and litigation. All entry level attorneys are expected to sit for the patent bar exam and become registered to practice in patent matters before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
If you are a bright, productive intellectual property attorney, please consider Andrus. Our firm not only has a prolific patent and trademark prosecution practice, but is also involved extensively in intellectual property litigation and sophisticated international work. Qualified attorneys interested in any or all of these practice areas are encouraged to contact the firm. In order to be considered, lateral hires need to be registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and also need to be admitted to the State Bar of Wisconsin (or at least willing to sit for the Wisconsin State bar exam). Advanced engineering or science degrees, or work experience prior to law school is a plus, especially for relatively young attorneys.
