Our client is a full-service specialist European Intellectual Property Boutique, recognised internationally for its work supporting organisations to leverage their intellectual property rights throughout the world. Their Associates, both solicitors and patent attorneys, combine legal and technological expertise with a deep understanding of technology to help their clients internationally achieve their commercial goals.
Culturally, the firm is a fun place to be – the fact it’s a true mix of solicitors and patent attorneys, both with scientific backgrounds and all engaged and passionate about technology makes for a happy ship.
They recruit on the basis that Associates have the potential to make Partner, and employees coming from the IP litigation teams at other, larger firms are pleasantly surprised at the environment they find.
Due to an internal promotion and the departure of an Associate to an in-house client, the firm’s dedicated Dispute Resolution team is now looking for at least one additional Associate for their London team.
To be considered for this role, you will have:
- Studied to at least undergraduate level in a STEM discipline.
- Trained and qualified (or be about to qualify) as a lawyer in a City or well-regarded international firm.
- If you have qualified, you will almost certainly have focused on patent litigation, most likely with a peer regional, City or international firm.
- Interest and passion for science and technology, and their intersection with the law.
Common law-qualified lawyers with relevant experience would be very welcome; the firm is able and willing to sponsor appropriate candidates.
