Small and Specialized

We love intellectual property law and are passionate about meeting the needs of our clients. Our firm is small and specialized in order to adjust quickly to industry trends, but our size allows us to provide one-on-one mentoring opportunities. Sunstein is a great law firm to develop one's niche.

Right from the beginning of an attorney's career at Sunstein, our associates have the opportunity to gain hands-on, client-centered experiences that might take years of apprenticeship elsewhere. Our commitment to mentoring and teaching make this possible.

Sunstein is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital, parental or veteran status, or disability.

Open Positions

Trademark associate

We seek an associate who will focus on prosecution and litigation of trademark matters with 2-4 years of experience, strong academic credentials, and exceptional analytic skills and writing ability. Experience with trademark and copyright prosecution and enforcement, as well as ex parte and inter partes proceedings before the TTAB strongly preferred. A passion for counseling clients on intellectual property matters, with a focus on trademarks and copyrights, and for the litigation of intellectual property disputes is essential. Candidate is a vigorous advocate who enjoys working in a congenial and technology-savvy atmosphere.

We offer competitive salary and excellent benefits. To join our outstanding team of professionals, please send resume in confidence to


Patent Associate

We are currently seeking a patent lawyer associate who has 2 to 5 years of patent prosecution experience for handling matters related to computer software, network infrastructure, telecommunications, cybersecurity, mobile technologies, blockchain, robotics, computer hardware, and medical devices. The preferred candidate will possess strong academic credentials, and exceptional analytical skills and writing ability. A Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related discipline is required.

While our patent practice emphasizes portfolio development using strategic filings, our patent attorneys also work with our IP litigators in developing enforcement and defense strategies. Patents from our office, in a wide range of technologies, have been involved in multi-million dollar litigation recoveries. Our ideal associate is a vigorous advocate who enjoys working in a congenial atmosphere.

I joined Sunstein in 2007 because I wanted to live and work in Boston and I wanted a law firm that was dedicated to having a world-class trademark practice. My colleagues at Sunstein have always offered me the support and the freedom to build my practice in trademark law in a way that was consistent with my individual goals as a practitioner. I can think of no better place to be an attorney than here at this firm in this city at this time.
