We are looking for a graduate to join our Trade Mark Team as a trainee trade mark attorney. We are looking for graduates with at least a 2:1 degree in their degree discipline. We welcome applications from new graduates or those looking for a career change.

Job Description:

Our attorneys handle the full range of IP rights including patents, trade marks, and registered designs. We also handle the protection of plant variety rights. Within these areas we handle drafting, filing, prosecution, opposition, enforcement, defence, and dispute resolution in general. We also advise on IP strategy and are able to offer support in due diligence and other aspects of corporate transactions handled by our law firm colleagues.

We see ourselves as trouble shooters. We help clients to overcome obstacles by whatever method best fits the strategy for that client. We partner with them and give them recommendations for how they should best protect their IP rather than simply providing options for them to choose from. As a result, we are regarded very much as members of our clients’ in house teams.

We understand work-life challenges and are sensitive to how work can impact your personal life. We respect this and will always encourage a good work-life balance. Our workplace is one where fairness, respect, equality and dignity are promoted and are part of the firm’s everyday goals and behaviour. There is a welcoming culture where we recognise that the different backgrounds, values, attitudes, skills and experience of our staff means they bring a unique perspective to work issues.

​Reddie & Grose Graduate Scheme

Reddie & Grose has an excellent reputation for training. Every new trainee will work closely with the partners of the firm, who will be responsible overall for training and development as the new joiners develop their role in the teams looking after our clients. As a complement to this traditional learn by working training, we have developed a bespoke training programme for our new trainees, which is intended to bring them up to speed with some of the core concepts of intellectual property law, and also to provide a degree of communal practical tuition.

The training programme begins with a two-week intensive training induction for all new trainees, introducing the basics of trade mark law, patent law and other intellectual property rights including design protection. The training induction also includes sessions dealing with important practical aspects of the job including, but not limited to “how to communicate with clients”, “effective marketing”, and “the role of a trainee”.  After an initial period of employment, trainees will be supported through the part-time course, leading to the Certificate in Intellectual Property Law* (currently provided by Queen Mary, University of London), the first stage of qualification.  The Chartered Trade Mark Attorney qualification is through the part-time course at Nottingham, also known as the Trade Mark Practice, Professional Certificate and the firm has a high success rate for candidates we sponsor through this.

We want our trainees to have access to the best support they can get, so they are also encouraged to take advantage of courses and lectures provided by the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys.

​About Us

Reddie & Grose LLP is an internationally renowned firm of European and United Kingdom Patent, Trade Mark and Design attorneys.

We pride ourselves on listening to our clients and offering expert and pragmatic advice and services that are tailored to our clients’ needs. Avoiding a ‘one size fits all’ approach has allowed us to build up many valued long lasting client relationships since our firm was founded in 1907.

We bring an in-depth knowledge of the UK and European intellectual property systems to the process of obtaining and enforcing your intellectual property rights. Internationally, we can help you find attorneys in other jurisdictions, and can give preliminary advice based on our long established experience and extensive network of overseas patent professionals. We are always seeking to inform and add value at each stage of the process.

We have an experienced team of attorneys who can advise on all aspects of Trade Marks, Patents and Designs.  On the patents side, we have specialists in electronics, software, mechanical systems, chemistry, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. In the UK and Europe, we work closely with solicitors, barristers, and other members of the legal profession to support you in litigation before the courts, where required.

Whether our clients are individual entrepreneurs or start-up companies,  research institutions or multinationals,  SMEs or standards bodies, we can assist them with the protection of their intellectual property world wide.

Range of work

On the trade mark side we work with household brands in a wide range of commercial fields.  You will have heard of some of our clients.  The firm’s client portfolio collection includes companies from an extensive range of commercial sectors.  On the patents side, we have particular strengths in electronics and software, chemistry, mechanical engineering and biotechnology.

Person Specification

We are looking for people who have the potential to learn through experience and teamwork, backed by professional qualifications, to take charge of a client relationship on behalf of the firm in the future – people who are personable as well as technically capable. What’s important is the quality of someone’s work and their commercial awareness to work with clients – not just the number of hours they have billed in a year.

Qualifications and experience requirements

Minimum requirements: at least a 2:1 degree in your degree discipline.  We welcome applications from new graduates as well as those looking for a career change.
