We are a firm of Patent and Trademark attorneys and offer a full range of services dedicated to maximising the value of our clients’ technologies, brands and designs. Our attorneys are qualified at both a UK and European level, with a legal expertise across a full spectrum of technical proficiencies.
With offices in London, Cambridge, Manchester and York, we operate globally including working closely with a network of trusted foreign attorneys that we have built over many years. Our China operation is run through our dedicated Commercial Consultant based in Shenzhen.
In the last two years, we have experienced significant growth and have seen a 25% increase in both our partnership and the general size of the firm. We were the first legal tenant of the Shard when we moved our UK headquarters to the 15th floor.
Due to ongoing growth and volume of work, we have a new vacancy in our Trade marks team in our Manchester office.
We are ideally looking for a finalist or recently qualified Trade Mark (TM) Attorney for a role handling a mix of contentious and non-contentious work for a range of clients across the automotive, consumer goods, sports, food and drink, clothing, pharmaceuticals and leisure sectors.
The group is well established and benefits from the support of an experienced Paralegal team and also a Trainee. The broader Trade Marks Practice includes our London team of a Partner, an Associate and another Trainee so there is depth across both offices.
Our office in Central Manchester is ideally located for commuting, restaurants and shopping. We moved into this office just over a year ago so the facilities are modern and spacious. In all, the office is home to four partners, three associates, three trainees and 10 support staff. We have regular social events locally and also join the rest of the firm for the annual summer and Christmas parties in London.
Mathys & Squire is a progressive, friendly place to work. We aim to offer our fee earners as much responsibility and client contact as they are ready for, but our teams are small enough that you will always have support when needed. Our Career Progression Guidelines set out clearly the criteria you need to meet to be promoted at every stage of your career with us.
We are looking for commercially minded people who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves up, get stuck in and help to build the practice. We empower our people to be the best they can be and offer a brilliant support team who will help you on your journey to success in Mathys & Squire.
