Anyone know of any IP firms hiring

Postby jmo7 » Thu Oct 01, 2009 12:30 pm

It has been ages since I have been on here, but I remember there being a pretty large number of IP minded folks on here. I'm currently a 3L with a BSEE, and I split my summer at two IP boutiques. The first one told me to wait and see, and the second one didn't hire anyone. I was just wondering if any other 3Ls have come across any firms hiring entry-level. Since many firms are deferring or just outright dinging, it is a ridiculously tight job market right now for a 3L looking for a job. Feel free to throw out any names and I will look into it. I'm interested in patent, trademark/unfair competition, and copyrights, but would be willing to try just about anything right now.

McKool Smith in Texas. They were recently interviewing 3Ls. They have high billable reqs, but are a very strong patent lit boutique.

You might try Dechert. They were looking to trade their 2Ls of last year for better 3Ls.

FYI, I applied to McKool's summer program last week and received a prompt e-mail response that they were no longer considering new applicants.

Why their 08 summer offer rate is so low?
