We’re looking for a first-rate patent attorney with the ability to handle physics and engineering subject-matter, to be based in our central Edinburgh office. The role involves managing an interesting and challenging existing portfolio of predominantly physics and engineering work for direct clients. The work could include a greater or lesser amount of electronics and/or computer software subject-matter.
Our clients appreciate the high quality of work which we produce and tend to stay with us. This is enabling the steady growth of our firm. We need patent attorneys who have the intellectual ability to analyse and interpret complex technical information, can think laterally whilst paying attention to detail, and have excellent written English skills, empathy, interpersonal skills and the commercial awareness to be able to advise clients to a high standard.
Our preference would be for an experienced attorney who is capable of working in a senior role, dealing predominantly with direct clients. However, we would also consider a recently qualified attorney who has the potential to become such an individual and we can provide the training and mentoring required to develop drafting, prosecution, contentious, client-facing, management, and business skills.
In any event, we can offer an exciting opportunity to be part of a growing firm, and prospects for the right candidate are excellent. We have well-appointed offices and a good, positive working environment. We have invested in systems which enable flexible working arrangements where required.
