Our firm culture is unique. We promote a friendly, collaborative, and inclusive atmosphere. We have an open-door policy and we believe in the free flow of ideas among all colleagues. We also believe in working hard and producing a top-quality product. We look for people who take pride in their work and want to make a difference for our clients and for our firm.

Law Students

Conley Rose welcomes resumes from top students (1L-3L) at all accredited law schools. We only hire students who have a degree in a technical or scientific discipline and who have a law school grade point average of at least 3.0. Our summer program is flexible and we welcome our summer associates to join us for any portion of the summer.

Partnership Policy

The most important criteria used in deciding whether to promote an associate to the partnership include the associate’s ability and desire to work well with others, to develop business, to exercise good judgment, and to demonstrate a commitment to the firm as reflected by the associate’s quality of work and financial performance. We generally consider associates for partnership after they have been out of law school for approximately 8-10 years and with the firm for at least 3 years.

Patent Agents and Technical Advisors

Patent agents and technical advisors are non-attorney patent practitioners with degrees in technical or scientific disciplines. These practitioners are playing an increasingly vital role in the growth and long-term success of all technical practice areas in our firm. Although we prefer candidates with advanced degrees, we also consider well-credentialed candidates with bachelor’s degrees. In addition, we interview candidates who are still in the process of earning advanced degrees.

Compensation and Benefits for Attorneys, Patent Agents, and Technical Advisors

Our compensation structure incentivizes attorneys to work hard, to work efficiently, and to produce a top-quality product. Compensation generally includes a base salary, a discretionary end-of-year bonus, and a formula-style bonus that is based on the associate’s financial performance. We also include usual benefits, such as paid parking and insurance. We’re particularly proud of our 401k matching program, which is not frequently offered by other firms. Under this program, the firm generally matches 55% of each employee’s annual pre-tax 401k contributions. Under our compensation structure, many associates can and do earn in excess of what they may earn at large firms for the same number of hours worked.
