Culturally the firm is very different to most private practices in London. They have a focus on commercial and strategic thinking, and push their staff at all levels to have interactions with clients and develop their own interests.
This is an interesting and challenging opportunity for a qualified trade mark attorney looking to work on a part time basis in central London. The firm specialises in handling a wide variety of corporate and commercial issues for clients including SMEs; businesses in their early stage development; financial institutions; public sector bodies; entrepreneurs; and family owned businesses. They currently have a small IP outfit but are looking to grow their success further with the newly created appointment of a trade mark attorney to work with existing and prospective clients, in particular across the media and creative industries, technology and retail.
You will be responsible for tackling the normal caseload of work expected of a trade mark attorney, as well as helping design and build upon the future infrastructure of the team. This will include:
Ideal candidates will have around 3 years’ PQE and will have knowledge of managing the internal business processes of a practice, as well as delivering outstanding client service. This is a part time role based on 3 working days per week.
Yes, we know there are lots of opportunities. Yes, we know your firm is doing everything they can to persuade you not to leave. Yes, we know you know what you want and you have a few contacts of your own you can call if you want to move.
But why are you making life difficult for yourself?
Are you approaching firms yourself, in your own time; negotiating your salary; managing any offers you receive; talking through the reasonableness (or not) of a new contract; and deciding whether the opportunity presented is all it’s cracked up to be?
It really doesn’t have to be this difficult.
The whole point of using a recruiter is that we do all of this for you. Yes, you can do it yourself but why would you? We don’t cost you anything as a candidate but we still work for you enabling you to get the best offer from the best firm for the best rate. Plus, at the moment we have loads of opportunities. Some of them you won’t have heard of. You can trust us with your future but don’t take our word for it – ask around, those that know us, know we’re honourable and always have our candidates’ interests at heart.
If you’re an attorney with an electronics background we have a wide variety of options available, yes, at newly qualified, but also part qualified and all the way up to senior associate and beyond.
For existing Partners or those aspiring to be so, this opportunity offers a chance to relocate to Dublin and be part of a fast-developing firm. The practice is very open minded in regards to technical background and whilst a client following would be ideal there is a huge amount of flexibility on what this might mean (from a good contact base with potential but no initially demonstrable income to a full portfolio of work). The firm is keen to grow further and wants new hires to be actively involved in shaping the future of the firm. They have a strong brand and commercial approach, and will provide significant resources to aid your move and help you develop your practice.
The firm are innovators, keen to grow and keen to invest in that growth by ensuring that everyone receives a fair share. They have a progressive culture with a very well balanced demographic mix.
European qualified patent attorneys from any European jurisdiction will be considered.
