Job Description

At Stroock, we always keep an eye on the future of the firm. That means creating a workplace culture focused on cultivating the best and brightest legal leaders of the future — and ensuring that our associates are engaged in crafting creative, efficient legal solutions across a wide range of practices.

Our bench has grown from coast-to-coast over the past year, with early-career attorneys continuing to be drawn to Stroock’s unique, associate-approved work environment at all four offices.

The New York office of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan is seeking a junior (2nd – 4th year) patent litigation associate to join our Intellectual Property team. Known for our skill and success in trying IP cases to verdict, we represent individuals and corporate entities, as plaintiffs or defendants, in patent disputes before federal and state courts. Our comprehensive litigation practice includes advising on the intersection of patent infringement and competition law, defending against claims brought by patent trolls and non-practicing entities and representing clients in matters before the ITC and the USPTO, including post grants proceedings and appeals.

· Candidates must have patent litigation experience

· Degree in electrical engineering, computer science or similar technical background preferred, although willingness to work across different technical areas (including Hatch Waxman) is desirable as well.

· Must have strong analytical skills and be detail-oriented

· Top-tier law firm experience as well as outstanding academic credentials

· Must be admitted to practice in New York

· Admission to the USPTO a plus


The New York office of Stroock pays market salaries for our attorneys. The New York pay range for this role is between $225,000 – $295,000, dependent upon experience and other relevant factors.


Must present proof of being fully vaccinated, including a booster shot against COVID-19. Accommodation for non-vaccination is subject to a bona fide medical reason or a sincerely held religious belief. Furthermore, the accommodation cannot cause Stroock an undue hardship or pose a direct threat to the health and safety of others in the workplace and the candidate who requested the accommodation.”
