Highly flexible firm will consider candidates with as little as a year’s experience up to and including newly qualified attorneys. The environment is very collaborative and they are keen to help people develop a well-rounded career. What this entails will include being given your own budget to develop your own client initiatives, the chance to work with large direct clients who are household names and balanced responsibilities between drafting, prosecution and providing strategic IP advice.
The firm has a policy of ‘continual pay review’ which means that every quarter there is an opportunity to increase your earning level based on how you’re doing in the job. In addition, they very much encourage a healthy work life balance ensuring that their attorneys do what needs to be done but go home at a reasonable time.
The position will suit attorneys who want to be more involved with their clients, be listened to not only by their peers but also their supervisors and enjoy a terrific range of work. Given the nature of the practice there is flexibility on the technical background that can be accommodated so both a mechanical engineering background or one that leans much more towards electronics and software could work very well.
