Pabst Patent Group (PPG) was founded by a group of intellectual property lawyers who, after working for many years at large firms, were inspired to build a different kind of organization—one that prizes intellectual curiosity, creativity, and a passion for science at the cutting edge.
Join Our TeamWe combine the top-tier legal talent and sophisticated clientele you’d find at a big firm with the responsiveness, industry focus, and innovative approach that’s only possible in a smaller, leaner organization. We value collaboration over hierarchy, and we share a zeal for turning our clients’ discoveries and inventions into intellectual property assets that have true commercial value and attract investment.
From lawyers to patent agents, scientific advisors, and professional staff, we seek out individuals with diverse professional backgrounds who share our values of excellence, integrity, creativity, and dedication to outstanding client service. We want the best candidates with superb academic credentials and superior technical, communication, and interpersonal skills.
We make a significant investment in the professional growth and development of our team. In particular, we offer outstanding opportunities for scientific advisors and patent agents to advance their careers and join our team of lawyers. Through our unique legal training program, we pay for scientific advisors and patent agents to attend law school while they work at the firm. We also provide crucial support to scientific advisors who become patent agents, reimbursing them for all costs associated with studying for and taking the patent bar exam.
Your Career Matters
We provide superior ongoing opportunities for career development through educational programs, conferences, and mentoring. Each of our associates, patent agents, and scientific advisors have their own annual budget to spend on conferences and courses tailored to their professional growth and business development. In addition, we regularly send our professional staff to trainings where they can learn more about patent law and expand their knowledge base.
We are focused on creating a work environment that achieves a true work-life balance. While we may thrive on solving complex challenges for our clients, we’re also sensitive to commitments that extend beyond the office. We recognize the importance of being able to recharge, and we strive to provide a nurturing and supportive environment for our team. We know that having time for family, friends, self-care, and personal growth is integral to a workplace that fosters happy and productive employees.
