Boult Wade Tennant LLP is a leading European firm of patent and trade mark attorneys with offices in London, Reading, Cambridge, Frankfurt, Munich and Madrid.

We are looking for a trainee patent attorney to join our Engineering & Designs team. The role is based predominantly in our London office, but we would be willing to discuss some time being spent in our Reading or Cambridge offices.

Most of our work is for direct UK, European and US clients, ranging in size from multinationals to smaller start-ups. After mastering the basics, our trainee patent attorneys go onto writing new patent applications and prosecuting patent families from first UK filings through to grant in Europe and beyond. There will also be a substantial amount of direct client and inventor contact.

The subject matter would be predominantly general/mechanical/aeronautical engineering and would include construction equipment, medical devices, aircraft, energy systems, control systems and other technologies.

We offer a top-of-class training program and focus our efforts on producing well-trained patent attorneys. We send trainees to external training courses in preparation for their exams and run several in-house tutorials for each exam. The trainees in our Group are supervised by and receive training from multiple supervisors, thereby diversifying their learning experience.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A proven interest in becoming a patent attorney
  • The ability to explain complex technologies in a clear and succinct manner
  • A general understanding of, and a keenness to understand, “how stuff works”
  • Excellent written and spoken English
  • A degree in general, mechanical or aeronautical engineering, or be in the process of obtaining such a degree
