Patent Attorney / Agent – Law Firm – Salt Lake City, Utah (Remote)

A patent attorney with a small firm in Salt Lake City is seeking several patent agents to outsource patent preparation (and prosecution) matters.  The patent applications are usually on simple mechanical devices, although there are some software.

The applicant will receive figures and will need to label the them in Vizio (and be able to do flow charts in Vizio). The applications don't take an extraordinary amount of time. A flat fee will be paid for each application (initially half up front, half at completion), which would probably not be a competitive rate for applications that were more time intensive.

I'm interested in finding a few different people to send apps to, and have several I need done as soon as possible.  Applicants do not need to relocate.  I can send the apps from where I am to you and we can communicate via phone or email.  I also do some patent litigation, and would be interested in outsourcing patent litigation motions for drafting to a patent attorney with experience in litigation.
