Patent Attorney / Design Lawyer – Small Law Firm – Silver Spring, Md.

SAIDMAN DESIGNLAW GROUP LLC is seeking an exceptional patent attorney. We are a boutique’s boutique, a small law firm specializing in a unique IP niche - design law - the protection and enforcement of IP rights in the aesthetic appearance of our clients’ products.

The firm’s practice includes strategic procurement and enforcement of design rights for this country’s most design-forward companies, analyzing infringement and validity of design patents, conducting and supporting litigation and enforcement efforts, including consulting with other litigators as experts in design patent law, and preparing and prosecuting mainly design, but some utility, patent applications. The firm also handles design copyright and trade dress matters.

If you have an eye for design and attention to detail, are registered to practice before the USPTO, and have 0-2 years of experience as a patent lawyer, this is an outstanding opportunity to become a specialist and key player in this burgeoning field. The ability to work independently is important, as is the willingness to learn from and be taught by the country’s leading design lawyers. Litigation skills and knowledge of trademark and/or copyright matters would be a plus. If your primary experience/exposure has been in the utility patent area, you will be trained in the niceties of design patent law.

This is a unique position, for a unique individual. Please note that we are not your typical workaholic law firm. Our lawyers find deep satisfaction in the design law work, representing sometimes demanding design-conscious clients, but in a congenial, non-corporate atmosphere that emphasizes quality over quantity.

Please send your c.v., cover letter, and a legal writing sample to
