An international firm known for their transactional IP and litigation work is growing their patent prosecution team in London. This is an exciting opportunity for an attorney looking to challenge their abilities in a supportive and collaborate environment whilst working within a smaller team, but with the resources and backing of a multi office leader in the IP profession.
The new team member will have access to a varied portfolio of clients, including software, medical devices, electronics and telecommunication, in particular 5G cellular communications. The majority of work is for direct clients in the UK, Europe, US and Asia, as well as having the opportunity to build on this base through internal and external referrals, business development initiatives and networking. The firm has access to a great deal of contentious work allowing you to work alongside the established team on a substantial number of oppositions, as well as gaining experience in areas not normally available at most patent firms.
Responsibilities will include significant drafting and prosecution (including a particular focus on standards-essential patents) in the UK, Europe and US, European litigation and opposition work, and strategic advisory and opinions. Secondments are offered to any of the firm’s international offices and although the position is ideally based in London, they will consider other locations in particular Paris and Munich.
Candidates are hoped to be nearing qualification and have a background in electronics, software, telecommunications or similar. You will need to be comfortable in a client facing and commercially focused role with ideally some experience in business development/marketing activities.
