Perhaps you are a Senior Associate and finding that your options for partnership are closing at your current firm? Perhaps you are a salaried Partner but can’t see a way to progress beyond that? Or perhaps you want not only the title but active involvement in how the firm runs, to be listened to when you have good ideas, to help develop a team and develop a practice.

You won’t need a client following, obviously it can help but this firm has a great deal of work already. The key aspect is an active interest in firm management – training others, business development, networking and commercially minded thinking. The team you will be working with are experienced, knowledgeable and most importantly of all genuinely easy to get along with. The firm’s culture is open, flexible and inclusive.

In terms of technical background you will have an electronics or physics profile (with a little bit of wiggle room). Attorneys who are currently Partners or those that aspire to be will be equally regarded. This opportunity is exceptional, particularly in the current year when much of the recruitment is about plugging gaps. This hire is genuinely aspirational. Candidates should be European and UK qualified Patent Attorneys, or, for example, where a candidate is relocating from outside of the UK could be only European qualified.
