Chemistry Patent Attorney, Part Qualified
Salary: Highly Competitive
Training to become a Patent Attorney is tough. What can help is a highly supportive learning environment coupled with a range of work that will allow you to develop your knowledge through practical experience.
How can that be achieved?
A firm that is keen to fit a role to the right person and adjust it accordingly to your demands can help. And part of that will be ensuring that there are ample opportunities for a variety of work. Yes, drafting and prosecution but also EPO oppositions and contentious matters.
The clients will be important too and you will be positively encouraged and enabled to build a relationship of your own with them, from small start-ups to global corporations.
And then the scientific mix will allow you to play to your strengths in the technologies that interest you as well as developing new interests over time.
Finally, a market leading training regime is essential to ensure a smooth as possible route through the examinations.
Sounds great but is that all?
Nope! The firm knows that aspirations change, career goals vary and whatever your long-term hopes may be, this practice feel they can accommodate them. You might want to pursue a career of training new attorneys, or be focussed on core patent attorney work or perhaps you love a party and want to spend your time networking and building new business? All of these are possible or, only some, depending on what it is you want from your career.
A plan is important. Not a ‘corporate vision’ as a substitute for a plan but clear goals of where the firm is heading and how all of their staff hope to achieve that plan collectively. The firm has a culture that is genuinely inclusive and one where all staff have a voice, junior, senior, new joiners or those who have been there a very long time.
