Patent Attorney / Design Lawyer – Law Firm – Silver Spring, Md.

SAIDMAN DesignLaw Group is seeking an exceptional, experienced and highly skilled patent attorney.  We are a boutique’s boutique, a small law firm specializing in a unique IP niche - design law - the protection and enforcement of IP rights in the aesthetic appearance of our clients’ products.

The firm’s practice includes strategic procurement and enforcement of design rights for this country’s most design-forward companies, consulting for other litigators as experts in design patent law, analyzing infringement and validity of design patents, conducting and supporting litigation and enforcement efforts, and preparing and prosecuting mainly design, but also utility, patent applications.  The firm also handles design copyright and trade dress matters.

If you are registered to practice before the USPTO, have 3-7 years of experience as a patent lawyer, and are looking for an opportunity to expand your expertise to include design law, this is an outstanding opportunity to become a specialist and key player in this burgeoning field.  The ability to work independently, at a high level, is important, as is the willingness to be taught by and support one of the country’s leading design lawyers.  Litigation and strategic counseling skills,  experience in trademark and/or copyright matters, and a facility with mechanical utility patent cases would be a plus.  If you do not have in-depth exposure to design patents, but have honed skills in the utility patent area, you will be trained in the niceties of design patent law.

This is an unusual position, for an unusual individual.  Please note that we are not your typical workaholic law firm.  Our lawyers find deep satisfaction in the design law work, representing sometimes demanding design-conscious clients, but in a congenial, non-corporate atmosphere that emphasizes quality over quantity.  We work hard while we’re here, but we’re not here all the time.  Weekend and evening hours are the exception, not the rule.   We also offer flexible work hours for applicants who may still be in law school.
