Strategically located near three major university campuses, and within hours of some of the major technology centers on the West Coast including Silicon Valley, Southern California, and Seattle, W|N offers a variety of challenging and engaging career opportunities. Our prosecution opportunities range from microprocessor, electronics, software, information technology and e-commerce technologies to chemical, biotech, pharmaceutical, medical and dental technologies, and other emerging technologies in areas such as nanocatalyst technology. Our litigation practice offers the opportunity to work on major patent infringement and other IP cases, securities, contract and other commercial litigation, representing both plaintiffs and defendants.
At W|N we approach every new hire as a long term opportunity. We seek bright, talented and motivated lawyers who will not only make valuable contributions as associates, but who will also become trusted colleagues and partners. We believe our culture is a key factor in attracting and retaining talented lawyers, paralegals and staff.
We offer competitive salaries that are consistently among the highest offers in the Salt Lake area, and which we believe compete favorably with many other areas of the country. We also offer an attractive range of benefits that include:
- Year-end performance bonus
- Profit-sharing plan
- 401(k) retirement savings plan
- Flexible spending/cafeteria plan
- Medical insurance
- Group term life and long-term disability insurance
- Attorney medical disability leave
- CLE budget
- State bar review course
- Patent bar review course (or equivalent reimbursement)
- Application fees for state and patent bar
- Professional association dues
- Reasonable moving expenses
W|N looks forward to its summer associate program each year and the opportunity to work one on one with talented and capable law students seeking careers in intellectual property. Our summer associate program typically begins in late April and runs through August. During that time, our summer associates have the opportunity to experience prosecution and litigation practice alongside some of the best attorneys in the country. We also strive to provide our summer associates with opportunities to assist in out-of-town trials and/or attend examiner interviews at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Interested applicants may submit a cover letter, resume, and undergraduate and law school transcripts to the firm’s Recruiting Coordinator, preferably by email.
Although our principal focus in the summer associate program is to provide a meaningful work experience, we also sponsor a number of activities that allow our summer associates to get to know one another and the members of the firm in a more relaxed, social setting. These activities often include dinner parties hosted by shareholders, a swimming party, theatre and concert events, sporting events, golfing, and other similar activities.
Travel Stipend: Because many of our summer associates are attending law schools outside of Utah, W|N offers a travel stipend to assist in covering costs associated with traveling to Salt Lake City for summer clerkships. The amount of the stipend varies, depending on where the summer associate is attending law school.
