About Patterson & Sheridan

When you visit Patterson + Sheridan, you’ll notice a few things. Our doors are open. Dress is business casual. Young associates are in face-to-face meetings with clients. Partners, associates, and staff members are all friendly, respectful, and collaborative.

We know we’re biased, but we think our firm is a pretty great place to work. We’re passionate about our work and thrive on making people—including our clients and each other—successful. We think mutual respect, honesty, humility, and integrity are pretty important. We want to hire the very best, but we won’t tolerate egos or bad behavior. When hiring, we ask one question: will this person make our firm a better place?

Our style is highly collaborative, with no silos or empire building. In fact, your success is judged largely by how much you help others succeed. Although individual achievements are recognized and highly praised, it takes a true team effort to deliver the kind of work our clients have come to expect from us.

Summer associate program

Our Summer Associate Program offers promising students an opportunity to get to know us, and for us to get to know them. Each year, we hire many attorneys through the program.

In the first week of the Program, we host a "Patents 101" seminar to provide you with a base of knowledge necessary for your time here. You are then assigned a supervising partner, who acts as your mentor and gives you real client work.
