UK qualified IP lawyer required for a specialist IP firm. Candidates from newly qualified solicitors up to circa 2 years’ post qualified experience will be ideal. The practice is very broad and likely to include patent and trade mark litigation, as well as some non contentious Intellectual Property matters. Typical clients could range from large engineering and technology companies, pharmaceuticals and biochemistry. The practice is a small tight knit group with considerable expertise, including a mix of barristers, solicitors and patent attorneys with a great deal of international and UK experience. They are great group of people to learn from and develop your skills, and you will be given a great deal of autonomy from day one. The firm encourages a healthy work life balance and is market competitive on remuneration.
Ideal candidates will have experience of dispute resolution, and some IP law experience is essential. An academic background in a scientific discipline will be highly regarded but is certainly not essential.
