Join a firm with a world leading reputation and take a truly international approach to your work. In light of their continued growth, this tier one firm are now looking to welcome a qualified patent attorney into their successful Birmingham team.
Due to an uplift in work they require individuals to work across the electronics and engineering disciplines, and can offer a portfolio that is both stimulating and impressively diverse. You will have the opportunity to cover the broad spectrum of patent duties from drafting and prosecution, through to oppositions and appeals. You will also be responsible for the provision of sound commercial advice to clients including sole inventors, academic institutions and multinational companies.
The firm’s Partners are experienced in representing clients internationally and handling regular oppositions and appeals before the UK and European Patent Offices. You will be offered ample opportunity for overseas travel in order to meet with clients and associates, and attend industry conferences and events. Secondment to one of the firm’s other offices is also wholly achievable, be it in the UK, Europe or further afield.
The environment is challenging and ultimately rewarding. A great deal of importance is placed on connectedness between different offices, both in the UK and overseas. This allows for regular communication with colleagues and promotes collaborative working and the sharing of ideas at all levels. Due to the size of the firm there is more than enough work available to accommodate your individual expertise, giving you the opportunity to tailor your practice to suit your interests as your role develops and explore areas beyond your own technical specialism.
This is an excellent opportunity to accelerate your career within a firm with a global presence. You will play an important part in the firm’s wider management and business strategy, and will be afforded a high level of autonomy to build and manage your own client portfolio. The firm offer a clearly defined path through to Partnership, as well as a benefits and salary package currently above market average. Ideal candidates will be newly qualified with up to 2 years’ PQE, and a strong academic background in electronics, engineering or similar.
