ALG is an equal opportunity firm, employer and place of internship. We actively seek, promote and possess diversity within our ranks and our programs, taking affirmative action when required for anyone who is disadvantaged for any reason yet deserving to be given the opportunity to prove ability, merit and competence. We are always scouting for talented individuals to come work with us.

There are three categories of applications you can fill up online and submit – Placement for Attorney Positions, Job for Other Positions, and Internship.

Positions with/in the firm – Placements, Jobs, and Internships – are not granted unless applied for through this portal. Applications sent in through any other mode are not entertained.

PLACEMENT

Placements are for full-time Attorney Positions with the firm.

Firm Attorneys are practicing advocates on a retainer with the law practice of the firm, not employees in a job on salary.

You may seek placement in the firm for being retained as a practicing advocate, if you fulfill any one of the following three criteria:

- You are enrolled with the Bar Council of a state in India; or

- You are eligible to enroll with the Bar Council of a state in India as an advocate and intend to so enroll and practice as an advocate; or

- You expect to acquire eligibility to enroll with the Bar Council of a state in India as an advocate within the next 12 months and intend then to so enroll and practice as an advocate.

While applying for a Placement, you need to apply either for Placement as an Attorney (General IP) or for Attorney (Patents).

Attorney Positions that can be applied for are - Trainee Associate (if you have been in law practice for less than 12 months), Associate (if you have been in law practice for at least 12 months) and Senior Associate Designee (if you have been in law practice for at least 36 months with a law firm of which at least 24 months have been in IP law practice). You will need to select at least one of these preferences. The application process for higher Attorney Positions is only by invitation.

All firm attorneys work in an Online Format from wherever they please. For any in-person client meetings that may be required or for any in-person ALG Team meetings that may sometimes be required, there are two physical offices currently maintained by the firm – at New Delhi and at Hyderabad, and there may be additional ones in the future. Otherwise, there are no location requirements on any ALG attorneys. All firm events are enabled for remote online attendance, participation and hosting – for all firm attorneys.

JOB

Jobs are for full-time employment with the firm. Jobs are not for Attorney positions with the firm. If you have a law degree or pursuing one, please do not apply for a job.
