Guntin & Gust employs highly skilled and productive IP Prosecution Paralegals and Patent Administrators. As a paralegal you will prepare written correspondence to clients and foreign counsel, perform docketing, manage client portfolios, generate filing documents, generate status reports and interact with clients via telephone concerning routine matters. As a patent administrator you will work closely with the paralegals and the office manager to perform tasks associated with patent prosecution and administration.  Such tasks may include, for example, entering prior art search results into our docketing system, downloading prior art references into our file system, generating draft outlines for the attorneys to use during client calls, entering items from timesheets into our billing system, and so on.  A patent administrator who is talented and motivated to learn new and challenging tasks can eventually grow into a paralegal position. The position requires a team player who works well independently and must be comfortable working with attorneys and staff at all levels. The position also requires initiative and flexibility in handling a variety of responsibilities.

We offer full-time employees exceptional benefits and a competitive compensation package. Our firm is ideal for mature, motivated and detail oriented candidates with a strong work ethic.

A Bachelor’s Degree is required for either position.  An accounting or business background is a plus. For paralegal status, at least 4+ years of experience of IP practice in a law firm is required.
