Biotechnology Patent Attorney, New Zealand

Job Region: Overseas
  • Do you like mountains/and or amazing scenery?
  • Do you appreciate a dry, self-effacing, maybe slightly sarcastic sense of humour?
  • Are you a qualified patent attorney (ideally EP, US or UK)?

Then we have a sneaking suspicion that we have a job for you in New Zealand.

Beyond being slightly sarcastic about mountains, this particular job has even more to offer. It has a mix of local and overseas client work across universities and blue-chip NZ companies, as well as international pharmaceutical businesses. It’s a role that will give you a lot of autonomy so you will need to be at a point in your career where you feel comfortable with that. Given the nature of the client mix, you will be looked to for commercial and strategic advice and have the opportunity to continually develop your expertise.

This is a position where a good amount of patent drafting experience would be really useful. Some experience of patent opposition and/or litigation would be a nice to have but is not essential. You will be comfortable working with attorneys who are earlier in their career, providing support and mentoring.

There is some flexibility on level of experience. You will absolutely have a technical background in biotechnology and be a qualified patent attorney, but beyond that there’s scope and flexibility. Remuneration is highly competitive for the New Zealand/Australian market but given the wide range of experience and profiles that could be considered, we will discuss with you on application.
