A career at MBHB means an opportunity to work with cutting-edge companies across a range of industries – including biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, mechanical and materials, chemical, electrical, cannabis, medical device and diagnostics, software and business methods, and telecommunications.
We encourage our attorneys and patent agents to build careers focused on the industries and technologies that interest them most. For some, that means specializing in patent prosecution in a specific industry. For others, it means focusing on litigation across a mix of industries.
We pride ourselves on our culture of collaboration and professional development. We encourage our professionals to develop relationships with partners and clients in the technology fields that suit them best. Early in their tenures with the firm, MBHB gives practitioners exposure to all aspects of IP law, chances for face time with clients and the opportunity to contribute to substantive work.
At MBHB, we use our scientific and legal expertise to counsel clients on a wide range of intellectual property matters. Our practitioners are not just attorneys and patent agents, but also scientists and engineers. In fact, most of our professionals worked outside of the legal industry before joining the firm.
MBHB professionals help clients with all types of IP law matters – from patent prosecution and portfolio strategy to IP litigation, trademark and trade secrets strategy. By combining deep technical knowledge with IP law expertise, we devise custom strategies that protect our clients’ innovations and support their business success.
The opportunity for growth is immense,
whether a practitioner decides to pursue a
law degree or remain a patent agent. Both
patent agents and attorneys prosecute
patents for dynamic companies across a
range of industries.
MBHB is proud to support our practitioners
as they study for the patent bar exam or
pursue law degrees. Offerings include tuition reimbursement, reduced billable hour requirements, and dedicated mentorship from senior attorneys.
We believe diverse backgrounds, viewpoints,
and experience fuel innovation. No matter
your position, we want to hear your opinions,
and we value your contributions.
MBHB is committed to fostering education
and dialog to ensure diversity and inclusion.
Our efforts to improve the diversity of
the firm and the legal industry as a whole
include a Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship
and a D&I billable hour credit policy.
The firm is also participating in the Diversity
Lab Midsize Mansfield Rule Cohort and
working towards Mansfield Rule Certification.
