Project Manager, IP Management SaaS

One of largest providers of management software and services to the IP industry is looking to further cement their leading reputation in the UK. The company has recently undergone a period of accelerated growth with a client portfolio now spanning over 150 countries and, although the company continues from strength to strength, they have ensured that the core values of the business have remained steadfast since the company’s conception.

They are recruiting a project manager to join their team in London to help manage client onboarding and ensure a smooth integration of the company software into the client’s environment.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Leading new client presentations and demonstrations, targeting the specific needs of each new client and ensuring that the software offering is tailored to suit.
  • Managing projects for a varied client base, ranging from smaller outfits through to multinational household names.
  • Liaising with internal departments in order to coordinate a smooth and successful transition, and communicate all client requirements effectively and efficiently.
  • Acting as point of contact to assist with any operational problems that may arise during the migration period to the new software platform.

It is hoped that the successful candidate will have prior experience in business systems implementation and integration, as well as working in a heavily client centric role. You will be given the freedom to solely manage your portfolio, which will require the confidence to believe in your own decision making (and ensure that your team is also on board). There will be some travel, both local and overseas, to meet with clients and an additional language particularly French or German would be beneficial.

Salary: £80,000
Location: London

Trade Mark Attorney - Qualified

Be part of a small but growing trade mark practice and as result enjoy a great deal of autonomy to do your own thing.  The portfolio is likely to be a mix including some contentious work as well as due diligence and infringement advice.  The role will really suit someone who wants to influence the development of a practice by being actively involved in business development and a strategic approach to gaining new clients.  As long as you are a qualified attorney any experience level will be considered from new qualified to several years’ post qualified.  

If you feel that your career is held back by too much bureaucracy or you are unsure of your longer-term potential for advancement this firm has a great deal to offer.

Salary: Highly Competitive
Location: London

Newly/Recently Qualified Patent Attorney, Chemistry/Pharmaceuticals

Enjoy an abundant volume and variety of work supporting a number of Partners ensuring that a diverse portfolio is maintained.  Work will include small molecule medicinal chemistry, medical devices, combination therapies and formulations.  There is also the potential to work within chemical processing, health foods agrochemical, cleantech and possibly oil & gas.

The practice deals with a significant amount of contentious work and you will build considerable experience of EP oppositions as well as potentially patent litigation in the UK.

The position could be based in either Cambridge or London with no particular preference either way.

Salary: Highly Competitive
Location: London or Cambridge

Salary: £35-40,000
Location: London

Anti DIY Electronics Patent Attorney (Newly Qualified)

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.

Salary: Sooo Much Money
Location: London

Partner/Partner Designate (any technical discipline)

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.

Salary: Highly Competitive/Equity Share
Location: Dublin, IRL

IP Director (equiv. Partner Designate)

As a direct result of past, current and expected business growth Swindell & Pearson is recruiting for a future Registered Director and Shareholder (equiv. Equity Partner). The initial role of IP Director is a springboard to equity with a one or two year time frame. The firm’s strategic plan is to expand its breadth of ownership and this recruitment is part of that plan.

The culture at Swindell & Pearson would suit someone who enjoys being given the freedom to develop their own client portfolio, but who is not a lone wolf; someone who is willing and able to contribute ideas and effort to the improvement of a firm that consistently delivers high quality work. This will most likely include successful client development but may also include training and fee earner development or contributing to infrastructural changes as the firm continues to grow.

Swindell & Pearson’s clients include some of the world’s foremost multinational companies, SMEs, academic institutions, government agencies and individuals. Both UK and international in nature the work includes obtaining protection worldwide, portfolio management, strategic and commercial advice, licensing, enforcement and due diligence. The firm has a very open, friendly and transparent culture, where doing well is rewarded. A meritocratic principle rewards achievement with progression and substantial support is given to ensure that fee earners have the tools they need to achieve their potential.

The Hi-tech team is the firm’s largest department with twelve fee earners in total and a high ratio of support staff to fee earners. The firm has a very high proportion of direct client work over the fields of electronics, semiconductors, automotive, computers and computer programs, and telecommunications amongst others. An initial portfolio of work for the successful candidate can be tailored to suit most technical backgrounds and preferences within these areas. The firm encourages attorneys to pursue client development initiatives to build client portfolios of their own design. Attorneys are supported in this by the professional business development and marketing department.

There is a great deal of flexibility in the recruitment of this role. Due to the range and scope of work available, qualified patent attorneys with an electronics, engineering or physics background would be appropriate candidates. While ideal candidates will be at or approaching a stage worthy of Partnership with their current firm and will be able to ‘hit the ground running’; applications from ambitious candidates earlier in their career are very welcome.
