Who are we?

O&R Patent Law is a boutique intellectual property law firm based in Boston’s Seaport district, focused on patent prosecution and ancillary services.  Our attorneys and legal personnel – some of whom have come to O&R straight from industry positions – have significant technology backgrounds based on academic credentials at leading universities and industry positions, and have gained deep intellectual property law experience at top, internationally recognized IP firms.  Our clients include domestic and international technology companies, ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies and prominent research institutions.

Why O&R Patent?

While once somewhat uncommon, over the past several years the boutique patent law firm has become an established presence in the marketplace of intellectual property legal advisors.  Many of these boutique firms succeed in distinguishing themselves both from general practice firms and from the mega intellectual property firms, by offering:

□  The opportunity to work closely with exciting, innovative clients in cutting edge technologies

□  A challenging mix of patent prosecution and ancillary services with clients ranging from start-ups to some of the largest technology companies and academic institutions

□  An open, collegial and flexible work environment

□  Excellent training with senior lawyers and professional educational opportunities

□  Client relationships focused on business goals and strategy, not merely a numbers game of as many patent filings as possible

O&R Patent checks all of these boxes and further differentiates itself from other IP firms in its ability to combine significant technology expertise with a keen ability to understand and help drive each client’s business goals.  We focus on a client’s big-picture IP strategy and help clients plan, build, and maintain a meaningful patent portfolio consistent with business objectives, budgets, and personnel.  We are celebrating our 10th anniversary in 2017; long enough to have demonstrated staying power and short enough to retain the entrepreneurial drive that spurred the founding of the firm.

Why you?

We are not looking for a lot of people. We are looking for the right people.  Those who have experienced Big law life, or have been pigeon-holed in a dead end industry position, or have borne the unacknowledged rigors of an academic career – or all three – and are looking to be reinvigorated with a new professional challenge.  Those who themselves are highly skilled and motivated and want to work as an integral part of a team with smart and talented colleagues.  Those who want to combine scholarly technical understanding with practical problem-solving in the patent field and to be trained in these skills by some of the best in Boston.  Those who are lawyers, patent agents, technology specialists, or holders of advanced technical degrees from top academic institutions wanting to make their next career move.

O&R Patent may not be the right fit for everyone, but it may be for you. We are currently seeking professionals in the following areas:

  • Technical expertise in a broad range of electrical and computer, mechanical and clean technologies with an advanced degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science
  • Technical expertise in biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, medical and biochemical instrumentation and devices, chemical compositions and biotechnology with an advanced degree in chemistry, the biological sciences or pharmacology
