Intellectual Property Lawyers

Work Environment

IP attorneys, like lawyers in other areas, have heavy workloads and work long hours. IP lawyers may spend hours poring over documents, with few breaks. Many law firms have weekly goals for their lawyers that include the number of hours billed to the client. Some of these goals can be extremely demanding. Most of the lawyer's time is spent indoors meeting with clients, researching, or arguing in court. Depending on their position in the company or firm, IP lawyers may lead a team of lawyers or supervise a group of paralegals and associates.
