What Does an Intellectual Property Patent—Life Sciences Attorney Do?
   

Why Do Intellectual Property Patent—Life Sciences Attorneys Enjoy Their Jobs?
   
What Are the Difficulties of Being an Intellectual Property Patent—Life Sciences Attorney?
 
  • Attorneys who enjoy working closely with others and do not enjoy extremely technical work tend not to like patent prosecution.
  •  The work also tends to be quite intellectually "taxing" and tiring.
 
How Easy Is It to Move Laterally as an Intellectual Property Patent—Life Sciences Attorney?
 
  • This has traditionally been a very healthy lateral market for attorneys.
  • From the mid-1990s until 2012, it was the most consistently active practice area for attorneys to lateral in--especially for people with life science degrees.
  • Post-2010 the market began to slow significantly as more and more attorneys started going into this practice area and the number of highly qualified attorneys willing to do the work significantly outweighed the number of positions in the market.
  • One benefit of this practice area is that in addition to major law firms that do this work, there are countless small boutique law firms that also do the work.
  • Due to the number of small firms that do patent prosecution, it is never much of a problem for attorneys to locate positions in the market.
