Lots of small and midsize firms offer this, but I can be hard to tell from the outside. A friend went from our firm to a very reputable (in our area) boutique with a 100 hour monthly requirement. Would recommend working with the best recruiter you can find in your target area and be upfront about what you’re looking for.

JFC that sounds amazing

Federal government for sure

May be a silly question but more of a sanity check…

Party A (licensee) signed a non-exclusive license with B (licensor). B subsequently signs an exclusive license with C (second license).

Does the signed exclusive licensing agreement impede on A’s non-exclusive rights, OR is the exclusive license subject to the prior non-exclusive agreement? OR is the “exclusive” license automatically deemed non-exclusive but still valid?

Note: the initial non-exclusive license stands in perpetuity.

There’s so much negativity about how associates are treated by partners, but how common is having amazing partners? I blew a simple instruction yesterday and was bluntly informed as such. I apologized to the partner without making excuses, and late last night he sent me a long email detailing what I did right coupled with good constructive criticism. He ended with “your success is my success, and I want you to succeed.” It meant a lot to me and I hope more of us have this type of experience…
