Summary: In a search for the right IP damages associate, Fisch Sigler has created a math question to suss out an applicant’s aptitude. 

The intellectual property law firm, Fisch Sigler LLP, is known for its unconventional hiring practices, and their latest job listing has proven that they are consistent with their human resource creativity.

In March, Fisch Sigler gave applicants a personality quiz in order to find a “literary artisan,” and this month, the firm is on the lookout for someone “who is comfortable with numbers and calculations.” According to partner, Alan Fisch, the personality quiz was a success and resulted in the hiring of an Ivy League lawyer who is finishing up a clerkship for a federal judge in New York.

“We have asked candidates to take our quizzes since we opened the doors in 2012,” Fisch said. “The process has proved so helpful that we decided to expand it to include position-specific tests–like a particular essay or mathematics problem.”

On Linkedin, the firm has stated that they are looking for an associate who will focus on intellectual property damages. To find someone who enjoys calculations, the company has asked applicants to answer the following question:

“If Jesse takes public transportation to work at a rate of 20 miles per hour, and then takes the same route home using a ride-share at a rate of 40 miles per hour, what is Jesse’s average speed for the entire trip?”

After applying online and answering another quiz, job applicants will be given an email address to submit their answer to the question above.



Fisch, who was the co-chair of Kaye Scholer’s IP practice before founding his own firm, said that the questions are created for each job listing.

“This process is entirely bespoke,” Fisch said. “We crafted it in-house out of a deep concern about making just the right hiring choice. The goal remains for our team to evaluate a broad picture of the candidate and for the candidate to experience a genuine taste of the team’s ethos and winning ways.”

Fisch Sigler LLP is an intellectual property litigation boutique that has offices in New York City, Silicon Valley, and Washington, D.C. The firm currently has eleven attorneys, and some of their clients include Imperium IP Holdings, Gap Inc., and Amazon.com.
