The current biotechnology practice at this firm is at the cutting edge of the profession, due to the industry leading experts that operate within it. You will be joining a firm with an excellent reputation amongst their clients, the likes of whom range from innovative UK based sole inventors and SMEs through to large international corporations.
The firm are well known for providing first class advocacy to their clients both at home and overseas; for example in Europe, Asia, America and further afield. Therefore your work load will be as diverse as it is international. You will have access to an engaging portfolio of work and have the opportunity to carry out a significant amount of contentious work, such as EPO oppositions and litigation. Furthermore, you will be working alongside attorneys with a wealth of contacts and practical experience gained from their time spent working in a variety of roles, including in-house at blue chip organisations and at well-known academic institutions.
The successful candidate will be given the chance to handle the broad spectrum of subject matter, as areas of work range from (but are not limited to) biochemistry, biotechnology, cell biology, immunology and bioinformatics, to biofuels and diagnostics. Therefore it is expected that you will have a strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry or similar, and will be comfortable supporting clients with regards to the protection of their Intellectual Property across a number of biotechnology related domains.
This is an exceptional chance to join a firm that is consistently rated as top tier by a number of legal directories. You will be welcomed by an interdisciplinary and open culture, in which collaboration and the sharing of knowledge is of a paramount importance. The firm is keen to hear from candidates who have recently qualified, although they will consider those from part qualified level upwards.
