Rothwell Figg is not just a law firm, we’re a tight-knit community passionate about what we do.  We practice intellectual property law and technology law – and we’re good at it.  We share the same belief as our clients that our people – our attorneys and the staff who support them – are what set us apart from every law firm.  The people we hire are accomplished and smart, and we invest in their careers through mentoring, training, and developmental opportunities.
We provide our summer associates with substantive work that accurately reflects what it is like to be a full time associate at the firm.  We work in sophisticated technological areas such as biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, computer hardware, software and the Internet, semiconductors, advanced electronics, and a wide variety of medical and mechanical systems and devices.  As a summer associate, you will have the opportunity to work closely with our attorneys on both patent litigation and patent prosecution matters.  You will get substantive work conducting legal research, drafting memoranda and briefs, working with a team on litigation matters, as well as reviewing and responding to USPTO Office Actions.
We seek 2L candidates with a strong interest in IP litigation and/or candidates with backgrounds in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, biotechnology, immunology, and other life sciences, and all degree levels will be considered.  We prefer students who have top academic credentials, excellent written and oral communications skills, and the ability to work well on a team.  We offer competitive salaries – our summer associate salary is $4,327 per week – and our summer program is 10 weeks.
Rothwell Figg is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
