The area where this firm is has three big pluses (1) great schools, and (2) affordable housing, and (3) safe neighborhoods. Prepare for a full book of business with national and international clients involving trademark secrets, copyrights, trademarks, patents and unfair competition. They are especially interested in hiring attorneys with technical expertise. This firm encourages its associates to participate in local civic affairs and events. There are some really nice people here and, if you want to practice IP law (this firm does other things as well), this may be the place for you.
