Are you a Patent Attorney with an interest in pharmaceutical subject matter and the desire to explore the next stage in your career? Withers & Rogers are actively seeking a motivated newly-qualified Attorney to join the team in Leamington Spa or London and play a truly integral role as part of the wider practice group.

Withers & Rogers’ Life Sciences & Chemistry group has a depth of expertise and experience in the chemical, biochemical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in academic research. You will be working with specialists across the group who have extensive experience in addressing the technical and legal issues affecting this critical sector, so there is plenty of opportunity to learn and develop within the team.

Our client base is truly global, including entrepreneurs, biotechnology and genetic research companies, pharmaceutical companies, horticulturalists developing new plant varieties, medical device companies, veterinary supply companies, and a number of chemical companies working in areas as diverse as fuel cells, liquid crystals and cosmetics. We also act for NHS Trusts and the research departments and technology transfer groups of many British universities. We frequently work with university spin-out companies.

We’re looking for applicants who have a background in Chemistry or pharmaceutical work. You will have qualified as a European Patent Attorney, and have demonstrable drafting experience. You will be able to demonstrate analytical skills, the ability to communicate effectively with staff and clients at all levels, the ability to prioritise work and manage time effectively.

We are committed to providing our employees with flexible working options, and we’ll work around you where operationally possible. Additionally, whilst we expect a lot from our people, we believe in a healthy work-life balance: realistic business targets mean that you will have time for a life outside of the office.

Our salary and benefits package is excellent, and includes our newly introduced sabbatical policy which allows 3 months’ leave after 3 years’ service, rising to 5 months’ leave after 5 years’ service.

If this sounds like the right move for you, apply to Withers & Rogers today.
