Overseas Graduate/Part Qualified Opportunity for Engineers, Munich
Top tier patent and trade mark practice Dehns is growing their already strong presence in Munich by hiring at least one engineering graduate to train and qualify as a patent attorney. There is also the opportunity for those who have started out in their career, perhaps those at part qualified level with a small amount of experience already training in the role. The firm has built a fantastic reputation across their multiple offices here in the UK, as well as having a well-established base in Munich for many years.
You will be very looked after, working closely with the team based in Munich and gaining experience in the full range of patent attorney duties. These will include IP identification; drafting and prosecution; advising both domestic and international clients; oppositions; and ongoing strategic portfolio management. You will also liaise regularly with the UK offices and outside counsel on handling your clients’ caseload worldwide.
Ideal candidates will have an academic background in engineering – general, mechanical or a related discipline. This is an excellent opportunity to begin your patent career, gaining experience and a different perspective that other trainees may not have access to.
Dehns has a friendly and down to earth culture, and a flexible working policy to suit most circumstances. The firm helps their attorneys succeed in part by encouraging an open dialogue such that novel ideas are promoted and areas for improvement are actioned.
