Our client is looking for an IP Transactional / TMT / Licensing attorney with 2 to 6 years experience. The new hire will be based in Shenzhen or Shanghai.

Qualified candidates currently Asia based, Europe based or US based will be considered. The new hire’s supervisors in this technology transactions in-house team are very well regarded US trained IP transactional lawyers, with substantial experience at Silicon Valley firms. The culture and atmosphere in this in-house group and the company in general is entrepreneurial, team oriented, and the work is cutting edge, even for a cutting edge industry. The upside of being in an important strategic in-house position in this fast growing and world leading internet company is of the “sky is the limit” variety. Its a very exciting place to be in China for a rising IP transactional lawyer in our opinion, for many reasons beyond the basic info we can share here in this ad / post. This is a special A+ opportunity.
Whether you’re actively looking for a new job or simply curious about the current market, you might opt to work with a recruiter to help you through the process. There are as many legal recruiters in the industry as there are law firms, and you might wonder what sets them all apart. Here’s a quick peek at the inner workings of Kinney Recruiting so you can decide if we’re the firm for you.
Experience counts. Most of our recruiters are attorneys who have big firm experience. All of our recruiters have significant recruiting backgrounds, deep client relationships and substantial knowledge concerning the legal markets they serve. We specialize in a wide range of attorney and professional legal staff placement services, including permanent, temp-to-perm, project and contract/hourly and other arrangements as the needs of our clients arise. We are also very well versed in the nuances of partner/shareholder placement and have unique expertise opening new offices for our law firm clients in markets across the globe.
Expertise matters. We are not and don’t want to be a one-size-fits-all recruiting firm. We focus on the industry we know. Our clients are a wide variety of law firms and corporations looking for top-notch legal talent. The depth of our experience and knowledge related to our clients and markets is absolutely unmatched. If you are an attorney, paralegal, office administrator or other professional whose work relates to the legal industry and you think we can help, we’d love to hear from you.
So, you have been presented to a prospective employer, and have been invited to interview. Now what? A simple question, right? The answer is both yes and no. Having worked as a legal recruiter for 15+ years, I never assume anything when it comes to preparing a candidate for an interview. It is folly to assume that even the most experienced professional will interview well, without proper “woodshedding” beforehand. Perhaps self-servingly, I would submit that interview preparation is one of the many benefits of working with an experienced legal recruiting professional, as the old maxim applies here, “the lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client”. In the course of this two-part article, I will share with you some anecdotes over the years which underscore this fact and give you tips on how to ace your screening interview.
Let’s start with the phone screen, our focus for Part One of this article. Increasingly, in this fluid legal market, where clients are searching out of city or state for highly credentialed candidates, we see the use of phone screens in advance of an in-person interview. At this point, you are probably thinking, “what could be so difficult about a 30 minute phone screen?” In theory, that is true. However, like an in-person interview, the success of this phone call will depend as much on how you connect with the interviewer on a personal level, as with your substantive abilities. There is a presumption that you are substantively sound, as you have been selected for the interview based on the skills, experience and academics contained in your resume. Of course, the lead work, timing and manner in which your candidacy is presented, something Kinney Recruiting excels at, is a tremendous advantage as well. But that’s an article of its own, for another day.
