SAIDMAN DESIGNLAW GROUP is a boutique intellectual property law firm located in downtown Silver Spring, 2 blocks from the Silver Spring Metro. We specialize in design law - protecting and enforcing rights in the aesthetic appearance of products. Our Fortune 100 clients rely on us to develop and execute cutting edge design protection strategies. We currently have an opportunity for an outstanding full time legal assistant with 3-5 years of experience, in intellectual property. We are not your typical law firm. We are a tight-knit, team-oriented group. We work hard while we're here, but we are not here all the time; quality of life is important to each of us. Since most of our clients are out of the area, we enjoy being casually dressed. Working evenings and weekends is the rare exception rather than the rule.
