We’re looking for bright and curious minds to join our Trade Marks group.
Providing specialist advice and support to brand owners across a variety of industry sectors in the UK and internationally, we represent a range of clients from large multi-nationals to SMEs and start-ups.
Here in the UK, the sectors we work in include luxury fashion retail, insurance, jewellery, luxury leather goods, finance and defence. On a wider scale, our group members partner a number of US corporations in areas ranging from software and games manufacture, healthcare and medical devices to publishing.
With every one of these clients, our aim is to work closely with them and develop a strategic approach to the protection and enforcement of trade marks. We believe in listening to our clients and tailoring strategies that meet the individual needs of each organisation. As such, we look for people who are fascinated by the world of international business and are passionate about working at the cutting-edge of creative developments.
Your degree does not need to be in any specific subject, although a law degree is probably most immediately helpful, while modern languages will also be of benefit.
Along with exam success you will need to produce a portfolio of experience. Initially you will be given the opportunity to gain the Certificate in Trade Mark Law and Practice from Queen Mary University London, and then the Nottingham Law School Professional Certificate in Trade Mark Practice. You will be using the skills gained on the job to help you through the courses, all the while putting together a portfolio of work that will enable you to qualify as a Trade Mark Attorney.
