IP Litigation BIO,CHE New York 2015-2018

I am assisting one of our Network Recruiters who is working on a unique position for IP Mid-level Life Science Partner-Tracked Associate. The position is unique because the IP leadership is going to award this Associate with “Slide Origination”, which will help expedite this Associate into the Partnership ranks sooner than later. 

The firm is a prestigious international AM firm and the position reports directly to the Life Science Global Litigation Chair. 

The IP leadership’s client base over the past 5 years has grown beyond all expectations. The leadership goals are to be major players within the top echelon of the IP life science litigation marketplace and currently are competing in this arena. In order to remain a competitive player at the top of the AM, they must continue to grow and expand their group. The leadership wants to groom and promote Associates into the Partnership ranks. 

The Key leadership Partners has expressed to our Network Recruiter that they want to bring in a Mid-level Associate who possesses the capabilities of moving on a faster than normal pace into the Partnership ranks. To help expedite this Associate into the Partnership ranks, the IP leadership will introduce this Associate to key clients that are growing. This Associate will be mentored by the IP leadership to become the point person for these clients. Once this person has taken control of clients that were assigned to them, the leadership will award the Associate with Origination Credit for the clients they are managing.

This Associate will also be a member of the new business development team, involved in the hiring process for junior Associates, as well as being heavily involved in the daily training, mentoring, and development of the junior staff. This Associate will also be a member of the group’s national trial team and participate in trials. The group has very active clients and often go to trial.  

This Associate will participate in high stakes “Bet the Company” litigation. This includes being involved with all aspects of litigation, including pre-litigation strategic counseling with clients, identifying expert witnesses, assisting with depositions, eventually conducting them, and assisting Trial Partners with all aspects of the case at trial. In addition, this person will also be involved in cases before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) proceedings. 

The group has a great work-life balance and places value on the importance of family. The IP group’s compensation plan ranks at the top of the AM. Associates are paid on the Cravath scale and many times exceed this scale.  

The qualified Associate should hold a BS in life science. A biological science degree or related discipline along with experience working with biologics and antibodies is a plus. This person will be working on biologics related patent litigation cases.
