Patent Associate - Chemistry
April 12, 2018
Foley Hoag’s Intellectual Property Department has an opening in our Boston office for a junior associate who is a registered patent attorney with a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry.
We seek applicants with strong academic credentials, excellent verbal and written communication skills, and one to four years of patent prosecution experience after graduation from law school. Experience in preparing and prosecuting patent applications in the areas of small molecules, pharmaceuticals, synthetic methods, molecular diversity and drug discovery would be particularly useful.
We staff our clients’ patent matters leanly, affording associates an opportunity for significant responsibility and excellent career development. Associates typically work one-on-one with partners, gain a depth of experience in a broad range of patent strategy, drafting, prosecution and diligence matters, and get immediate client contact. Such experience has contributed to the firm’s consistently excellent rankings in various national satisfaction surveys and industry recognition lists.
