Patent Attorney / Agent – Law Firm – McLean, Va or Indianapolis, Ind.

“The work environment for attorneys at Jones Robb is excellent. It’s a collegial environment. The membership team is thoughtful and they are great communicators. The work is diverse, no two days are the same.” These thoughts were shared by an attorney during a recent employee survey conducted to test how well we are doing at leading and motivating our employees. What if you had the opportunity to learn and work on a variety of technologies in multiple industry sectors under the mentorship of different partners? Imagine being able to work with different clients, interacting in different ways to solve challenging problems and achieve different client-specific goals. Our attorneys know that working on the same type of work product, in the same discipline can lead to burn out in the patent world. We get it, which is why we are a diverse patent boutique firm with a strong mix of clients and projects, with a team-based approach to the delivery of our services.
