Patent Attorney – Law Firm – Washington, D.C. (Or Remote)

Brake Hughes Bellermann LLP seeks Brake Hughes Bellermann LLP a patent attorney for its patent prosecution practice. Our firm handles patent prosecution and counseling for a range of technologies, including computers, software, electronics, mechanical engineering, and networking/communications.  We offer a friendly and flexible work environment with an “office-less” structure.  While the firm is based in Washington, DC, several of our attorneys are located on the West Coast, and we will consider non-DC locations for qualified candidates.  

We are one of the few firms that aspires to be a full-service patent prosecution firm in a truly virtual setting.  By contrast, various other firms have a physical presence somewhere but allow attorneys to work remotely.  However, we understand that such remote attorneys struggle with the partnership track or otherwise to fit in or advance within the firm culture.  Also, there are micro, 1-3 person firms that are completely virtual but that don't offer real growth prospects for an incoming attorney.  We feel BHB is unique because we can offer candidates the opportunity to grow their career in a traditional sense of developing their practice, participating in the firm’s growth, eventually becoming partner, etc., while allowing them flexibility of location. 

Compensation at BHB is highly competitive with other Washington, DC-based firms.  Benefits include 401k, medical, and dental insurance.  

• Ability to understand complex information and to explain the information clearly
• Excellent written and oral communication skills
• Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, computer science, physics, or related fields (advanced degree and/or industry experience preferred)
• 2-8 years of experience with preparing and prosecuting U.S. patent applications
• Registration to practice before the USPTO
