Applications are now open for our first round of assessments for our 2022 graduate scheme. The locations for this position are in either our Cambridge or London offices.

As a graduate entrant you will be given full support to achieve qualification as a chartered UK and European patent attorney. We run our own comprehensive in-house ‘Training Academy’ which combines tutorials, and lectures as well as mentoring and supervision from partners and other qualified attorneys. In addition, you will also gain a range of commercial skills, such as business development and client care, as part of our on-going personal development programme.

Applications close on Sunday 6 March 2022. We anticipate first round interviews will take place between 28 March – 8 April 2022. First round interviews will take place via video call and we hope to run second round interviews in person.


You will have ideally gained at least a 2:1 degree in biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, plant sciences or any similar subject. Applications are also welcomed from those completing a doctorate, undertaking postgraduate research or working in industry.

In addition, you need to have a natural curiosity to find out how things work, excellent communication skills and meticulous attention to detail. You need to demonstrate technical excellence, an interest in the commercial world and appreciate the importance of intellectual property to businesses. Due to the international nature of the work, foreign languages are an advantage, but not essential.

Working as a patent attorney requires not only an excellent technical and academic background but the ability to draft comprehensive documents and defend complex legal arguments. It is a challenging and rewarding role enabling you to be involved with leading-edge research as well as understanding and supporting the commercial objectives of a diverse client base worldwide.
