Reddie and Grose is a European IP firm with offices in London, Munich and Cambridge. Our life sciences team is made up of specialist hubs through which we can offer our clients tailored services across the entire IP spectrum. This blend of specialism and diversity is recognised as one of our key strengths and has resulted in significant growth in our client base over the last 5 years.


At Reddie & Grose LLP, our commitment to fostering an inclusive and diverse environment is anchored in our core values. These values were established through the collective contributions and insights of everyone at our firm.

  • ​Be Open: We want trust to be at the core of our firm and we believe clarity and transparency in our decisions and actions are key to building it.
  • Belong Together: We actively foster a friendly working culture where we create opportunities for people to connect, collaborate and belong. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusivity drives us to continually improve our culture, ensuring that everyone feels heard and welcomed.
  • Excelling for clients: We are a team who excel at meeting our clients’ needs, proudly offering bespoke and high-quality services. Driven by continuous improvement and an unrelenting commitment to quality, we prioritise opportunities for our clients.
  • Leading the way: We empower our people to lead the way, nurturing a culture of curiosity and a relentless pursuit of knowledge and continuous learning.

​To support this growth, we are looking for a Chemistry/Life Science attorney with experience working with pharmaceutical clients in the small molecule space.


Depending on the candidate, the role can be adapted to reflect the type of work that best suits your skills and wishes. The diverse nature of our client base means that your work could cover all aspects of patent law from managing and developing patent portfolios to handling EP oppositions and contentious matters in the pharmaceutical and chemistry sectors.

For our SME and global clients you would be responsible for the life-cycle management of their portfolios so experience in drafting and prosecuting small molecule patents, from NCE through to second medical use claims, is essential.

If your interest lies in EP oppositions and other contentious matters then you will have the opportunity to work with clients who are continually looking to challenge the scientific and legal boundaries in the life science and chemistry fields.

In addition, this role will give you the opportunity to get involved in supplementary protection certificates and other areas that are unique to the pharmaceutical industry.


Depending on the location of the candidate, we are seeking a qualified European Patent Attorney to join our Life Sciences team based in either of our UK offices (London or Cambridge), or our European office in Munich.

Reddie and Grose welcomes diversity so whilst English is the firm’s working language, being a native English speaker is not essential and fluency in at least one other European language is desirable. In addition to the EPA qualification, an equivalent National Qualification would also be desirable.

The successful candidate must have good communication skills and be able to work as part of a team.  In addition to looking after existing clients, you will also be supported in business development activities to help you grow your own practice base so any experience you already have in this area would be well received.

This is the perfect opportunity for a qualified European patent attorney who wants greater exposure in the profession and a chance to take their career to the next level. At Reddie & Grose you will play a pivotal role in the development of our life science practice and become an essential part of our team.

We offer a competitive remuneration and benefits package, including:

  • ​At least 26 days of holiday plus public holidays
  • Remote home working (40% office / 60% working from home)
  • Christmas bonus
  • Active social events calendar
  • Positive culture for work-life balance
  • Family Friendly Policies


Reddie & Grose LLP is an equal opportunities employer. It is essential that equality of opportunity and the absence of unfair discrimination be at the core of all the firm’s policies and activities. We value diversity and ensure that all employment decisions are based on merit, competence, and potential. Every individual’s uniqueness enhances our collective strength. We are members of IP Inclusive and have been actively involved in Women in IP, IP & ME, IP Out and IP Ability.
