Managing Trademark Attorney

LZ Legal Services United States


Position at LZ Legal Services

About LegalZoom


Our mission is to democratize law. LegalZoom transformed the legal industry with the launch of our online services and groundbreaking technology in 2001. Since then, millions of customers have counted on us to officially start and run businesses, protect brands and intellectual property, and look after loved ones through wills and trusts.


In 2021, we were licensed by the Supreme Court in Arizona to operate our own US law firm, LZ Legal Services, LLC. With this approval, LegalZoom is at the forefront of regulatory innovation as the first publicly traded company (and one of the very few non-lawyer owned companies) to own a US-based law firm! Through our law firm of over 25 attorneys, we offer customers quality legal advice and file trademark applications at a fraction of the cost of a traditional offline attorney. Since inception, we have filed over 25K trademark applications for customers, making LZ Legal Services the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office’s highest volume filer in the United States.




Since March 2020, our Zoomers have worked remotely and reported an overall better work-life balance with more time for family and personal wellness.


At the end of 2021, LegalZoom made the official commitment to being a remote-first company. Remote-first means that there is no expectation that Zoomers come into an office for a fixed number of days outside of those employees identified as essential onsite workers. While we remain a remote-first culture, our local offices have evolved as collaboration spaces for Zoomers to meet and engage in person.


This position will be remote.
