Patent Attorney – Law Firm – Scottsdale, Ariz.

Solo practitioner seeking help with large case load of patent applications and office actions.  Majority of patents cover disk drive technology, including general electrical and computer engineering, communication theory, control theory, and coding theory. The position requires a law degree, registration at the patent office, and most importantly, a solid understanding of electrical engineering principles.  I prefer a recent law graduate with little or no experience in patent drafting or prosecution.  However, you must have an electrical/computer engineering degree from a top engineering school, preferably have at least two years experience working as an engineer in the field, and a solid understanding of electrical engineering principles.  I can teach you patent drafting and prosecution, but I'm not interested in teaching anyone electrical engineering.  The compensation will exceed $300k for a motivated and technically competent candidate.  The position is at my office in Scottsdale, Arizona.  I have established my practice over the last 20 years, and I have plenty of work to keep a qualified candidate busy for many more years. I'm not interested in farming out overflow work because of course that would fail miserably.  I provide technically competent service to my NASDAQ 100 client because I focus on one technology. I'm offering a lifetime opportunity to learn the same under my guidance. You can flounder at a large law firm working the fringes of numerous disconnected technologies, or you can do something meaningful and lasting.
