Sideman & Bancroft is a majority women-owned, boutique San Francisco firm with an award-winning intellectual property practice group purpose built to provide end-to-end intellectual property protection for companies in all stages of development. Our intellectual property practice is distinguished from others by a number of unique specialty practice areas such as criminal referrals, online IP enforcement, and global customs enforcement, in addition to providing full-service IP prosecution and registration work and of course substantial civil IP litigation. We represent some of the largest and most recognized brands in the world (as well as smaller and “up and coming” companies), and provide them with the quality of legal representation expected from a large firm, but with the touch and care of a smaller firm.
The firm currently has an opening for an Intellectual Property Litigation Associate/Counsel with 5+ years of IP litigation experience, strong case management experience, and superior legal writing skills. Prior experience with trademark and copyright litigation is preferred. The right candidate is proactive, practical, results-oriented, a strong communicator, and some who takes true ownership over matters and can be given significant responsibility representing large and small clients out of the gate.
Sideman & Bancroft is a welcoming workplace that celebrates diversity among attorneys and staff. We believe in the principle that we will attract the finest individuals to serve our clients only if we actively seek talent from the entire spectrum of the community. The firm emphasizes a culture of inclusion regardless of gender, gender identity, race, ethnic background, sexual orientation, religion, age, or disability status, participates in professional and community activities that promote diversity, tolerance and equality of opportunity, and encourages and supports its individual attorneys to do the same. Sideman & Bancroft is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
California bar membership is required.
