  1. “churned through” being the operative phrase.

    If you’re just weeding through work product and discarding those attorneys, then it doesn’t matter whether they’re physically present or not. In fact, it’s much cheaper to avoid moving expenses and all if you’re not sure that you’ll keep them.

  2. I would have to agree with you. I prepare patents remotely for several firms around the country. One of the larger firms mentioned to me that they churned through more than 25 candidates until they found three that produced work product of sufficient quality.

  3. There was one advertised on either craigslist DC or linked in. Check it out. I am a secretary looking for position in DC so if you hear anything, please let me know.

    Thank you.

  4. Isn’t whether they’re sufficiently skilled or not a separate inquiry from whether they need to be in the office or not?

    Not in my view, bja. If they’re not sufficiently skilled (but all indications are that they could become so), then I want them here so that they can collaborate with others and get close supervision and training.

  6. We get resumes all the time from “prosecutors with substantial experience” who want us to simply send them matters so that they can work at home without any supervision or interaction with the rest of the firm. Almost without exception, the writing samples suggest that these prosecutors aren’t nearly as skilled as they think they are.

  7. Back when there was client contact, firm culture, partnership track, etc., I could see the importance of having face time.

    Now, with patent prosecution merely being a labor arbitrage scenario, there’s just no need for face to face meetings, even with other lawyers at the “firm” when you’re just turning apps for corporate clients.

  8. I bet it’s because the partners are a bunch of old butts who don’t understand computers and type Responses to Office Actions using Courier New because they only understand typewritters.

  9. Never understood the fetish with requiring prosecutors with substantial experience to work in a brick and mortar office in a particular location.

  10. Awesome to see some demand for patent prosecutors again. I just wish that some of them would offer remote arrangements for mid level prosecutors.
