Title : Patent And Ids Paralegal

Location : Massachusetts - Boston
Refer to Job # CCRO804906

This firm is on the large side of the medium firms. Approximately 1:1 partner associate ratio keeps most of the lawyers here fairly busy in all of their full service practice areas, with a special emphasis on intellectual property and employment litigation. Decidely not a firm who cares to spend a lot of time discussing quality of life, how does this financial district firm boast the low attrition rate? Simply, the firm makes sure that the associates have the kind and type of work they want, with fairly competitive salaries. Don't bother looking for the partners to talk the talk about associate satisfaction, it's not their style. But virtually ignoring these issues has done well for the firm--and its associates.
