Due to an exciting period of growth of our client base, we are seeking to grow our electrical patents team as well as other services across the firm in line with our expansion plans and client demand.
Partners of the Electrical Team – Mike Jennings, Nick South and Nikesh Patel, are therefore keen to appoint a Patent Attorney to take on a key role within the electrical team to work with existing and new clients. This is a unique opportunity to play a key role in the team and to reap the benefits of working with and being supported by our talented team of attorneys and solicitors across the firm to create the very best solutions for our clients.
Our ideal candidate will have a computer science degree or a related degree and a background working with a range of computer-related technologies and with an understanding and interest in other areas of technology (e.g. robotics and artificial intelligence, electronics, electrical engineering, or telecommunications). Experience may range from finals standard to 2 years PQE which may be from industry or private practice (the person is more important than an exact amount of PQE and so is flexible). Comfort with handling patent drafting and prosecution, as well as patent oppositions, freedom-to-operate reviews and patent-related advice and counsel is also desirable.
