Join a small but highly successful trade mark team in Bristol, and collaborate closely with colleagues at all levels – including all Partners and support staff. The team has far reaching experience across an interesting mix of industries, including insurance, entertainment and leisure, high end fashion and accessories, luxury goods, and medical devices.

You will be responsible for providing an all-encompassing service to your clients from the initial advisory stages, searches and filing, through to more contentious matters including oppositions and cancellation actions, domain name disputes and the negotiation and drafting of settlement agreements. The client base offers a challenging blend of local start-ups, sole entities, academic institutions and multi-national companies, requiring regular travel to the EUIPO as well as local representation in the UK.

The firm is very commercially aware, with members of the team using their past in-house experience to offer tailored business savvy and pragmatic advice to their clients. The size of the practice will give you a vast amount of freedom and the opportunity to build your own practice from day one. This is a great opportunity for an attorney who is ready to take the next step in their trade mark career with a high degree of independence, but with the support and encouragement of a very well regarded and experienced firm. Ideal candidates will have recently qualified, however those with 3 years' experience up to those with 3 years' PQE will also be considered.
