Lateral Patent Attorney

Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC – one of Northern New England’s largest law firms - is seeking an experienced patent attorney to join our Intellectual Property Group in either our Burlington, Vermont, or our Lebanon, New Hampshire Office. Backgrounds in chemical/biochemical arts or electrical/physics arts are preferred, and experience with medical devices is also a plus. The ideal candidate will have a book of business, and be eager to develop and grow client relationships, and become part of a team committed to delivering top-quality service to growing and successful businesses.

This is a unique opportunity to work with a team of sophisticated intellectual property professionals. Burlington is consistently ranked among the best places to live in the U.S. by numerous publications and polls. It provides a vibrant cultural environment, a thriving downtown, a welcoming community, easy access to mountains and lakes, and short commutes. Lebanon is located in the Upper Valley, a region along the New Hampshire-Vermont border that includes Dartmouth College, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, and over 120 tech companies, including biotech, medical tech, and software companies, among others, and provides ready access to the college town of Hanover and a wide variety of outdoor activities.

DRM serves a wide range of local, regional, national, and international clients. Our intellectual property lawyers have worked at some of the largest firms, IP boutiques, and corporations in the U.S., and are now at DRM because they have found they can continue to have sophisticated practices while enjoying the many benefits of living in the Vermont-New Hampshire region.

DRM is committed to investing in our attorneys’ professional growth and development. We offer excellent mentorship and training, as well as leading technology, competitive salary, and a comprehensive benefits package, including industry-leading paid parental leave and two generous retirement plans.
