Ballard Spahr LLP , a national AmLaw 100 law firm with more than 475 lawyers in thirteen offices located throughout the United States, is looking for an IP Litigation Associate with 3 to 5 years of experience in IP litigation, including patent litigation to work in our Philadelphia office.
In particular, we are looking for someone with active experience regarding e-discovery, claim construction (including Markman briefing), infringement and invalidity analysis, expert reports, and trial. While patent litigation is our greatest need, this candidate also will be involved in trademark, trade secret and copyright matters, so subject matter experience in these areas also is desirable. Excellent academic credentials, and superb writing and oral communication skills are required.
This is a terrific opportunity to join a growing IP Litigation Group with a national practice, and to immediately undertake positions of responsibility in a collegial atmosphere.
Qualified candidates should submit their resume, law school transcript, and professional references to: PAattyjobs@ballardspahr.com.
