Tired of working with the same technology? Perhaps you fancy a change from dealing with one major faceless client, or feel you have limited responsibilities and little challenge in your current role? This opportunity will allow you to broaden your horizons, both in terms of the range of clients and the type of work you will have access to. Technologies include anything from vaccines, antibodies and immunology, to agrochemicals, stem cells and plant variety rights. You will have the pick of clients from emerging start-ups, SMEs, blue chip organisations, academic institutions and government bodies.
It is an exciting time for this Oxford operation, with an already established yet growing client, foreign attorney and referral network resulting in the need for an additional experienced member to join their team.
There’s work waiting for you but they’re not just looking for someone to simply make up numbers and churn out responses. You will have the freedom to go after your own clients, become involved in firm-wide projects, help train and mentor trainees, and travel extensively to network, learn, and further build the international brand of the firm.
Join a team of experts, including those with industry experience from across the US and Europe, in the exciting and friendly Yorkshire hub of a UK leading firm. You’ll have the opportunity to work on a range of tasks from day one, including liaising directly with clients on all aspects of patent procurement, portfolio management, dealing with contentious issues, licensing, and everything in between. Clients include Silicon Valley big hitters, smaller up-and-comers, European names with some challenging IP requirements, and UK tech start-ups.

Honest dialogue is encouraged throughout the interview process (and once you join) and regular appraisals ensure your career remains on track and, more importantly, how you imagined it.
