Chapin Intellectual Property Law, LLC is a Patent / IP law firm which seeks a friendly, experienced (minimum 2 years) and detail-oriented Patent Secretary / Administrator or Patent Paralegal to join our team and support experienced partner-level patent attorneys. This is a great opportunity to join a casual (jeans are fine), exciting and often fun place to work with an excellent client base of numerous Fortune-sized companies. Currently we have 8 patent professionals. We are located in the Metrowest suburb of Southborough just off the MA Pike at the intersection of Rt. 9 and 495 to allow for an easy commute without traffic, parking or train schedule issues.
Candidates must be very computer literate (MS Word, Excel, Internet), detail-oriented, organized, easy going and friendly, a team player (relaxed and can work well with others), and have some good solid patent prosecution support experience as a patent secretary / patent admin / patent paralegal. Fluency in U.S. patent prosecution deadlines and procedures is expected, as is at least 2 years of solid full time experience from a law firm or corporate patent department. Foreign patent / PCT patent filing and docket management are a plus but are not required. Litigation support is not required.
Benefits include individual dental and health coverage paid in full (family plans are available)m generous vacation PTO and holiday pay, and the opportunity to work with a team of down to earth and friendly people. The firm is located right off Rt. 495 and Rt. 9, just west of Framingham, 1 mile North of the MA Pike (Rte. 90). The modern building offers health facilities, free parking, and a nice overall location. The firm also provides flexible working hour arrangements. Part time people wishing to do 2 or 3 days per week are also considered.
Do away with the lengthy Boston commute / train / parking hassles and stuffy overloaded big-firm work environment and come join an energetic and entrepreneurial minded firm that is on the move, going strong and growing. We are an equal opportunity employer. No recruiters please.
Note that this is NOT an entry level position – you MUST have at least 2 years of patent prosecution support work experience. We are seeking a career-minded individual for a long term employment relationship and merely an interest in IP law is not sufficient (law students or future attorneys should NOT apply for this position). All information will be held in strict and complete confidence. Please email (preferred), fax or postal mail cover letter / resume with full employment history in patent law to:
