Check NALP dood. I know Alston has a legit IP group there, and I imagine other shops have satellite offices with similar groups.

Here are some other (sort of outdated) links that might help you get started.

L&C List of IP Firms (NC is between MT and NV)

I am a NC native at a T10 with what would pretty widely be considered a "patent-perfect" resume and I was shut out completely. I know others that were as well with even better qualifications.

I noticed that:
-there was a pretty large advantage for UNC. huge network.
-it seems like there might be opportunities years down the road once you get trained elsewhere. firms doing patent lit in NC are hiring single digits if any at all straight out of school.
