We like to have fun!
We're serious about IP, and we like to have fun too! Throughout the year, we have social events large and small, from "donut drops" and ice cream socials to a high-energy holiday party and annual employee appreciation luncheon. Our hallways are always bustling with activity, the lunchroom is lively, and of course, it's always nice to grab a specialty drink with colleagues at the barista bar! We invite you to learn more about our culture.
When we set out to fill a position, we strive to hire the best-qualified person — someone who can make immediate contributions to the firm.
