We are looking for a qualified or part qualified (finals standard) Patent Attorney (EPA and/or CPA) with a background in Physics or Engineering.
Wilson Gunn is a leading firm of patent and trade mark attorneys. We enjoy a high proportion of direct client work and represent an enviable selection of patent clients across a range of sectors, including automotive, food and drink, medical equipment and consumer goods.
You will be responsible for an exciting portfolio of work. Whilst the work is principally mechanical engineering, we have work in a wide range of fields including electrical, electronic, medical, and computer and artificial intelligence related inventions and if you are able to support any of these areas, we would like to hear from you too.
We are happy to consider newly or nearly qualified attorneys, as well as those with more experience, for this role. Previous experience working in an in-house role would be desirable, but is not essential.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking to handle a varied and interesting caseload and work directly with clients, and who is looking for great career progression.
We have comparatively low billing targets and offer our attorneys a high degree of autonomy, yet the size of the firm and the atmosphere means that there is ready access to partners and individuals have an ability to influence the business as we continue to grow.
We work flexibly. The role would be associated with either our Manchester or Birmingham office, but it would be open to work remotely as well as from either office, or our office in Liverpool.
We offer a competitive salary package including pension contributions, bonus scheme and holiday buy/sell. Additional holidays are accrued with service.
