We are actively seeking lateral patent prosecution associates and patent agents with strong expertise in organic chemistry (an M.S. or Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, or similar discipline is required). Experience in design and synthesis of pharmaceuticals preferred. Candidates should have excellent academic credentials and preferably at least 2–4 years of experience prosecuting patent applications for chemistry related matters.
We are committed to promoting diversity within Klarquist, and strongly encourage candidates who come from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the patent legal profession (e.g., based on gender, race, ethnicity, culture, religion, sexual orientation, military service, and disability) to apply.
Klarquist professionals could practice anywhere; at the largest law firms and companies, and in the largest cities. They chose Klarquist because here they can pursue both their passion for law and their passion for life. Our reputation for excellence and emphasis on maintaining a work/life balance attract experienced attorneys from large general practice firms as well as IP boutiques, and appeal to top students from national and local law schools.
