Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company


At HPE, we bring together the brightest minds to create breakthrough technology solutions and advance the way people live and work. Our legacy inspires us as we forge ahead dedicated to helping our customers make their mark on the world. Learning does not only happen through training. Relationships are among the most powerful ways for people to learn and grow, and this is part of our HPE culture. In addition to working alongside talented colleagues, you will have many opportunities to learn through coaching and stretch assignment opportunities. You'll be guided by feedback and support to accelerate your learning and maximize your knowledge. We also have a "reverse mentoring" program which allows us to share our knowledge and strengths across our multi-generation workforce.Hewlett Packard Enterprise ("HPE") is the global edge-to-cloud Platform-as-a-Service company that helps organizations accelerate outcomes by unlocking value from all of their data, everywhere. We're built on decades of reimagining the future through innovation. Consistent with that culture of innovation, the HPE Legal Department is changing the game of how a large corporate legal department delivers legal services. One part of that "game changing" culture is the 2L Summer Program.HPE hires attorneys directly out of law school by recruiting summer interns into one of three practice groups - Intellectual Property, Litigation and Corporate (Securities and M&A). HPE's summer interns work on a diverse range of matters with other Legal members, many of whom are performing substantive legal work at a much faster rate than their peers in law firms. Summer interns will also have the opportunity to participate in a number of pro bono activities and other Legal and HPE-wide events across the country.Recruiting top talent through the Summer Program is a critical component of HPE's game changing approach. As such, the Summer Program is designed to feed into full-time attorney positions, and summer interns are paid at a market-competitive rate. The Summer Program lasts 10 weeks and includes travel to HPE's San Jose headquarters.Assuming strong performance, full-time junior attorney positions are available at various U.S. locations:Intellectual Property: San Jose (CA); Houston (TX); Ft. Collins (CO); Reston (VA)Litigation: Reston (VA); Wayne (PA)Corporate, Securities, and M&A: San Jose (CA); Houston (TX)Requirements Currently enrolled in second year of law school. Academically accomplished - HPE requires candidates to have excellent academic credentials. Strong communication skills - HPE requires excellent communication skills (oral and written). Our attorneys frequently interact with more senior HPE attorneys, outside attorneys, and business executives. Interpersonal skills and professional demeanor - Successful candidates will have strong interpersonal skills to enable effective work with internal clients and other attorneys in a team-oriented partnership. Game changing attitude - Success at HPE requires the flexibility to accept new and different challenges in a fast-paced, high-tech environment.Specific requirements for IP candidates Technical degree - HPE strongly prefers IP candidates with degrees in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Physics. IP candidates not having one of these degrees must be exceptionally strong in other areas (here we consider applicants with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science). Demonstrated patent law interest - HPE requires IP candidates to have a demonstrated interest in patent law. This requirement is typically satisfied with patent-law-related summer associate or law clerk experience, passage of the USPTO agent exam, significant patent law academic work, or a combination of these. Patent Examiner experience is highly valued. Intellectual property law principles - A working knowledge of intellectual property law principles is required of all IP candidates. Patent application drafting experience - HPE sees patent application drafting experience positively, but does not require this experience in our IP candidates. We do, however, see it as a plus for otherwise well-qualified IP candidates.Specific requirements for Litigation candidates Demonstrated litigation interest - This requirement is typically satisfied with litigation-related summer associate or law clerk experience, significant litigation academic work, participation in litigation-related programs (e.g., legal aid), or a combination of these. Willingness to do "real" work earlier - Junior litigation attorneys at HPE do the "real" litigation work (i.e., depositions, court appearances, etc.) at a much earlier stage in their careers than their law firm colleagues. Therefore, successful candidates will have a desire to take control of their own litigation matters, with appropriate supervision and guidance from more senior Legal attorneys.Specific requirements for Corporate, Securities, and M&A candidates Demonstrated corporate practice interest and financial acumen - This qualification is typically satisfied through a summer associate position, significant corporate academic work, participation in corporate and commercial transactions programs (e.g., negotiation workshops), or a combination of these. Willingness to do "real" work earlier - Junior CSMA attorneys at HPE do the "real" corporate, securities and M&A work (i.e. drafting disclosure and M&A provisions, negotiating provisions of a deal, closing transactions, etc.) at a much earlier stage in their careers than their law firm colleagues. Therefore, successful candidates will have a desire to own our public company support and M&A transactions, with the appropriate supervision and guidance from more senior Legal attorneys.We offer: A competitive salary and extensive social benefits Diverse and dynamic work environment Work-life balance and support for career development An amazing life inside the element!
