In-House IP Counsel

Back to opportunities

Latitude has an In-House IP Counsel position that is an exciting opportunity for a relatively junior intellectual property attorney to move in-house with the small and agile legal department of a fast-growing, publicly traded company in the renewable energy industry.


If you have 3-5 years of legal IP experience at a large corporate law firm or highly respected IP or patent boutique firm and are looking for a chance to make a move in house, this is your rare opportunity.

  • Oversee the company’s patent and trademark portfolios
  • Get away from your desk and do boots on the ground issue spotting for the company
  • Manage IP-related litigation
  • Manage IP licensing issues
  • Assist with IP due diligence


But you won’t have to do it all on your own. You will have guidance and support from others in the company as you grow into this position.

  • Electrical or mechanical engineering degree, preferred
  • 1-2 years of practical engineering experience, preferred
