Unified is now accepting applications for legal internship and fellowship positions for assisting with its legal and database activities (including PATROLL prior art search contests). Å technical background is highly preferred, although some training will be given (e.g., how to search for prior art). Experience with Excel and/or Google Sheets is a must. Interns and fellows will potentially have the ability to assist with PTAB analytics and drafting of papers in IPR proceedings.

We offer flexibility and the option to work remotely. Internships can be paid or unpaid based on experience. During the position, there will be opportunities to win prize money for contests to find successful prior art on specific patents.

Unified Patents is a member-based organization that seeks to deter NPE litigation within its protected zones of technology. Unified accomplishes this goal in a variety of ways. One way is by filing inter partes review proceedings (IPRs) challenging the validity of NPE-controlled patents. In addition, Unified provides a variety of patent and PTAB data to assist companies in making informed licensing and litigation decisions. Unified also makes this data available to the public for independent study or research.
