This position is for a full-time Technical Advisor (TA) or Patent Agent (PA) who is fluent in English and Chinese. The candidate selected for this position will be required to translate Chinese language patent applications into U.S. language patent applications, and to draft English language patent applications based on Chinese language invention disclosures. This position offers an opportunity to work with an innovative Intellectual Property Law Firm in a collaborative team environment.

Ideally, the TA/PA will be able to handle the prosecution of the U.S. patent application, however, the firm’s U.S. attorneys will also be able to assist with this function as needed. The TA/PA will work closely with a U.S. attorney who is fluent in English and Chinese who will supervise their work. This position will report to our Alexandria office. However, this position could alternatively be a work from home position due to pandemic concerns.
