The role would suit a professional who has recently passed the Professional Certificate in Trade Mark Practice, with a total of around 3 years’ experience. The opportunity is based at the firm’s headquarters in London. We are looking for a bright self-starter, someone who enjoys autonomy, is enthusiastic and wants to contribute to a highly respected and well-known trade mark team.

The firm

The Trade Mark and Domain Names group are one of the largest in Europe with teams in the UK, Germany and Spain. This rapidly growing team support some of the world’s largest brands.

Who we are looking for

We are keen to hear from talented individuals who are legally and commercially aware, and who would relish the challenge of a fast-paced working environment.  The ability to prioritise and multitask is critical, as is the resourcefulness to offer creative solutions to our clients.

The successful candidate will be able to develop and maintain excellent client relationships as well as internal working relationships.
