We are looking for a recently qualified or soon to be qualified Patent Attorney (EP or UK) with a background in at least one of computer-implemented inventions, electronics and telecommunications to join our leading IT and Engineering practice group.
You will be involved in drafting and prosecution of UK and European patent applications for a wide range of domestic and international companies, giving you a broad spectrum of interesting work. You will gain experience in a full range of direct client work, including oppositions before the EPO and contentious matters, while offering your clients strategic IP advice.
Opportunities for career development and training make up a big part of our success. At GJE, we’ll support you to develop your skills and advance your career. We have a clear career development structure which we would be more than happy to discuss in detail during the interview process. We will help you play to your strengths and develop experience in areas that interest you, which will add value to the business and help us build upon its success. You will have the opportunity to work with a wide range of partners throughout the business and the opportunity to work within interdisciplinary teams.
We recognise that not everyone has the same aspirations, and even those who do may well have different routes to the end goal. So, whether you are a natural at bringing in new business, have a passion for training less experienced colleagues, or prefer the nuts and bolts of what being a patent attorney is all about, you are likely to find a place to thrive at GJE.
We are based at the prestigious Broadgate Tower, where the heart of the city meets Shoreditch. Not only does the tower provide fantastic offices in a great location, but it is often featured in film and TV productions! We offer everyone the ability to work flexibly and would be happy to discuss this along with our benefits during the interview process.
Our success is down to the people we employ
Our firm has a clearly defined strategic vision for where we are heading and an impressive track record to match. There are around 120 of us in our city office, so we’re small and friendly enough for you to get to know everyone – but big enough to offer you great career prospects.
As well as offering a competitive salary, a wide range of benefits and excellent career development awaits you at GJE.
Equal opportunities and diversity are important values of GJE. If you have any special requirements, please contact us to ensure that we can make any required adjustments for the interview.
Vision & Values
We have a diverse workforce, yet we all share a vision and a set of core values. Our vision is: to be the right choice for intellectual property. That means as an employer, we aspire to be the right choice to develop your career.
We hope that you will join us at GJE to progress your career and to help us realise our vision.
