Leaving a job is hard. And sometimes it is difficult to know whether or not you are making a good decision or if where you end up is going to be no better than where you left. We can help ensure you make an informed choice that is best for you.
We place patent attorneys, trade mark attorneys and IP lawyers in positions in the UK and around the world and as an intellectual property recruitment specialist, we can give insight from a perspective different and potentially more pragmatic than your peer group. We recruit both for in-house positions and private practices at all levels from part qualified patent or trade mark attorney (or newly qualified solicitor/lawyer) up to and including Equity Partner and Head of IP/Director positions. We work with many of the most prestigious UK firms and some of the largest corporations in the world.
Recruiters find it easy to tell someone what they want to hear, especially if it works in their favour. However, it’s much more difficult to highlight the realities of the market and how it might affect the choices a candidate makes. Whether it’s the answer you were expecting or not, we will always ensure our recruitment advice will be in your best interest. We will talk you through a range of opportunities and compare their individual quirks, ensuring you are in the best possible position to decide which job (or jobs) could be for you.
Our unique focus on both local and international networking adds to our market knowledge and enables us to offer alternative options that may have previously been overlooked by you or by another recruiter.
We take your confidentiality extremely seriously and understand it takes a lot to entrust someone (especially a recruiter) with your personal details. That is why we will always discuss each individual role with you in depth and gain your permission before sending your CV or disclosing your identity.
Over the years we have placed attorneys in a wide variety of roles within the UK and overseas. These have included ex-Partners seeking a change of pace (or those whose clients needed a less political home), part qualified attorneys frustrated by a lack of support, newly qualified associates getting too much agency work (or not enough) and those who really wanted ‘something different’ but have not been able to put their finger on quite what that is. We have encouraged attorneys to consider options that were not initially obvious, leading to some quite dramatic career changes and have given confidence by providing support and guidance throughout the interview process.
We like to talk, be it a general discussion about the changing market and current trends or tailored advice on taking your next step as a patent attorney, trade mark attorney or IP professional. Quite often we have provided advice to candidates over a number of years before they decide to move firms; we are happy to invest time in you, particularly if you invest your trust in us.
