Knobbe Discussion

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 28, 2010 6:44 pm

Hi everyone,

I was hoping anyone with relevant info could post their thoughts on Knobbe Martens, specifically the Orange County office in Irvine, CA. I am considering them along with another smaller patent shop and would love to hear what people thought of them. Thanks for the help.

Also, if you have any info on the area, where to live for the summer, etc... that would be great as well as I am not very familiar with the area (somewhat close to the beach would be great).

Best Regards

I had an awesome CB with them, but was just recently rejected (from the east coast, no ties, etc...). It seems like a great working environment, and there are definitely some pluses to the 5-year partner track. The firm seems to be doing well despite the downturn, too. GL on your decision, and I wish I was in the same boat!

I remember that their partnership tract is being increased to 6 yrs. With the amount of new recruits these years, I'm wondering whether that number is going to be pumped up again before our class is up for consideration.

Other than that, I think Knobbe is a great place to work, esp if you just want IP.
