An opportunity has arisen in our Glasgow office for a graduate with a background in Electronics. We are now accepting applications for our first round assessments.

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.

Please visit the graduate section of our website for more information about our Training Academy and our Software and Electronics practice group.

We have not set a deadline for closing applications, however if you are interested, we encourage you to apply early as applications will close once we have found suitable candidates. CVs will be reviewed approximately every three weeks. First round interviews will take place via video call.


The role requires a strong background in electronics and therefore would suit graduates who have studied Electronics or Electrical Engineering. We also welcome applications from those who have studied Physics, but you will need to demonstrate a strong background in electronics – please state which modules you have studied. You will also need to have gained at least a 2:1 degree in your subject. Applications are 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.

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.
