Join a firm with a world leading reputation and take a truly international approach to your work. In light of their continued growth, this tier one firm are now looking to welcome a finalist level patent attorney into their successful Birmingham team.
Due to an uplift in work they require individuals to work across the electronics and engineering disciplines, and can offer a portfolio that is both stimulating and impressively diverse. You will have the opportunity to cover the broad spectrum of patent duties from drafting and prosecution, through to oppositions and appeals. You will also be responsible for the provision of sound commercial advice to clients including sole inventors, academic institutions and multinational companies.
The firm’s Partners are experienced in representing clients internationally and handling regular oppositions and appeals before the UK and European Patent Offices. You will be offered ample opportunity for overseas travel in order to meet with clients and associates, and attend industry conferences and events. Secondment to one of the firm’s other offices is also wholly achievable, be it in the UK, Europe or further afield.
The environment is challenging and ultimately rewarding. A great deal of importance is placed on connectedness between different offices, both in the UK and overseas. This allows for regular communication with colleagues and promotes collaborative working and the sharing of ideas at all levels. Due to the size of the firm there is more than enough work available to accommodate your individual expertise, giving you the opportunity to tailor your practice to suit your interests as your role develops and explore areas beyond your own technical specialism.
Throughout your training and qualifying examinations you will benefit from the guidance of Partners who are leaders in their field, with solid technical and industry experience. You will also train and study alongside a supportive network of peers, as part of the firm’s innovative in house training scheme. Furthermore you will have the chance to work closely with the firm’s trade mark attorneys, IP solicitors and lawyers, allowing you to develop a well-rounded understanding of the broader IP profession.
This is an excellent opportunity to accelerate your career within a firm with a global presence. They are looking for candidates who are not afraid to be put in front of clients from day one so you will need to be confident and above all client facing. Ideally you will be at finalist level with a strong academic background broadly within electronics, engineering or similar.
