Our Survey Says
Bookoff McAndrews is looking for talented, diverse attorneys with prior work experience—and preferably technical experience, as a patent firm—who will work well as part of the team. The firm organizes regular social opportunities (including via Zoom during the pandemic) like happy hours, family-oriented events, and birthday and holiday parties. Relationships between partners and associates range from professionally friendly to genuinely close, with valuable informal mentoring occurring on a regular basis. BoMc has a bootcamp for new attorneys, to provide a baseline on the firm’s policies and practices, and weekly CLEs on practice-related topics, plus a formal mentoring program to help with any training needs. The firm is generally busy, though when and where you work is flexible and there is no pressure to bill significantly beyond the 1,850 billable-hour requirement. The work is interesting, and associates are given frequent opportunities to manage projects and grow their skills. Associates consider their compensation—which includes a rare 401k match—well balanced with quality of life, and feel that they have the ability to choose between partnership, non-partner roles at the firm, or exit opportunities, depending on the direction they wish to go with their career. The firm’s technology serves well for remote work, and it updates platforms as needed to improve efficiency. Wellness efforts are tied to BoMc’s emphasis on work-life balance, with partners encouraging time off and personal efforts to stay healthy. The firm is supportive of pro bono efforts, though associates note pro bono opportunities for IP are less common. BoMc has a diversity committee that hosts regular panels and other events, and focuses on diversity in hiring and promotion.
