Associate – Law Firm – Redwood City, Calif.

turnerTurner Boyd is an intellectual property litigation boutique built around a simply stated goal: to provide the expertise and quality of a large firm with the personalized service and value of a small firm.

We are smart and passionate advocates. But we believe that billing 2000 or more hours a year doesn’t serve the interests of our clients or ourselves. And we believe that we cannot be excellent lawyers without valuing our lives outside the office, our families, and our friendships. Instead, we litigate with focus, efficiency, and creativity; with our clients’ business needs firmly in mind; and with well-cultivated senses of proportion and humor.

Turner Boyd associates get the kinds of experience, responsibilities, and opportunities that firms typically restrict to partners. Instead of helping partners prepare for oral arguments and depositions, they are preparing to do them. Our clients recognize their voices and faces, not just their names on the bill. The ideal candidate will have at least two years of experience in IP litigation, particularly patent litigation. Excellent legal research and writing skills are an absolute prerequisite. A technical degree (especially a CS/EE degree) is preferred.

Contact
Our compensation is competitive with peer firms, commensurate with our lower billable hour expectations. If we just described the type of place you want to work at and the type of lawyer you want to be, please send your cover letter, resumé, law school transcript, and writing sample to recruiting@turnerboyd.com.
