Case Study: How Insight Global Met One Law Firm's Toughest Hiring Needs

About Our Client

Our client is a leading law firm that focuses on intellectual property (IP) and technology law. They assist start-ups and emerging tech companies in leveraging their intellectual assets to achieve their business goals.

Each year, the firm drafts and secures thousands of U.S. and international patent applications that accurately describe their clients’ inventions while ensuring compliance with the legal requirements for patentability. Their expertise extends to managing patent portfolios for clients of varying sizes, from large corporations to smaller enterprises.

Project Overview

The Need

Even with the presence of an impressive team of attorneys, our client faced challenges in managing the workload of patent and trademark applications for its multinational corporate clients.

To enhance their services, backfill open positions, and meet the demands of their expanding practice, the firm needed to recruit additional legal professionals with specialized expertise in the following areas:

  • Mechanical and electrical engineering
  • Consumer electronics, semiconductors, and artificial intelligence
  • Battery, mechanical, and automobile
  • Cosmetics

The Challenge

Here’s the catch: the IP talent pool is relatively small, and finding patent attorneys and agents with niche expertise is no easy task.  The rigorous educational requirements coupled with the necessary certifications limit the number of qualified individuals in the field.

Without a dedicated recruitment team, our client hit the limitations head on when it came to available time and staff to devote to the recruitment process.

That’s why they turned to Insight Global for help.
