About EIP Digital
EIP Digital encompasses a broad technology spectrum including computer hardware, software and machine learning/AI, electronics, wireless and telecommunications, applied physics and optics. Strength in these fields has been at the core of EIP and our continued success since we were founded in 2000.
Renowned for its experience in patent drafting and strategic patent prosecution, and a go-to practice for litigation in high-tech patent cases, EIP’s Digital team has been engaged in many of the highest profile patent litigation cases in the UK and Germany, and oppositions at the EPO, in recent years.

Many of these members operate at the intersection of various cutting areas such as electronics and health-tech, AI and drug discovery.
About the role
This is an exciting, newly created role which will play an important part in the growing Swedish IP team. We are looking for an individual at the start of their career who is capable of handling technologies such as artificial intelligence and similar high-tech digital software.
In this role, you will be providing the firm and its clients with high quality, technical legal support relating to patents. The cases undertaken are highly complex and often of a pan-European nature. Although the successful individual will work closely with the Swedish Partners and the wider Swedish organisation, there will also be opportunities to work with colleagues on matters based in the United Kingdom.
The successful candidate will have between 1 to 3 years of experience working within a well-established IP legal team. Individuals should have a background in electrical engineering, engineering physics, mathematics or computer science.
Following the opening of our first Nordic office in 2022, we are continuing to grow our Swedish presence and cross-border capabilities. This is an exciting time to join the team, supporting the Swedish function to expand. The successful candidate will continue their training as part of EIP’s renowned training programme.
We are seeking candidates to be situated in our Stockholm office or in Malmö/Lund

- Ability to express complex ideas clearly and concisely, and the ability to structure a precise and coherent argument
