New Associate and Lateral Associate Opportunities

Our work is complex, challenging, and never boring. At Patterson + Sheridan, you will grow not only professionally, but intellectually as well.  You'll tackle work for high-profile clients who are developing some of the most innovative technologies.

New associates are quickly familiarized with client work and included in face-to-face meetings with clients and inventors.  Lateral associates are valued additions to our team and are quickly integrated into our client and inventor relationships.  We have invested in a private plane so that we can visit our clients regularly.  Our clients value the time we spend working in person with their inventors and other professionals to understand their technologies and business strategies.  

We value relationships.  Our clients treat us as an extension of their teams, enabling you to see first-hand how large innovative companies, as well as pioneering start-ups, develop products and technologies that are literally changing the world.

We seek attorneys with advanced technical and scientific backgrounds.  Before law school, many of our attorneys worked as inventors, engineers, or scientists.  Before joining the firm, many served as in-house counsel or U.S. Patent Office examiners.  We look for a diverse range of skill-sets and ability to merge technical, legal, and business expertise to provide well-rounded counsel to our clients.

We are always looking for motivated attorneys with a scientific undergraduate background.  If you're interested in joining the Patterson + Sheridan Team, send your resume to [email protected] For specific openings, please review our Current Openings page.
