Barnes IP are a fast-growing dynamic IP firm, focusing mainly on patenting in software and electronics, with expertise in AI, robotics, fintech, medtech, cybersecurity and space technologies. Our clients are a mix of industry leaders in their respective fields and energetic start-ups – including three unicorn start-ups (a company which reaches 1 billion USD in valuation) whom we’ve represented since incorporation – each with clever technology and exciting ideas that need protecting.
We offer a refreshing, supportive and forward-thinking working environment that’s fully paperless, built from best practice. As a graduate, you’ll be able to work on a varied and interesting caseload, liaising with both new and established clients to develop comprehensive worldwide patent portfolios. In-house training is second to none too, with support from experienced attorneys who have active roles in the profession’s qualifying exams and training programmes.
Your future at Barnes IP
We’re an ambitious, forward-thinking firm and a core part of our success is our unswerving commitment to recruiting the very best people.

We pride ourselves on looking after our trainees, involving them in working for our exciting and varied client-base and helping them progress within our company and with their training and professional qualifications.
Working in our small but fast-growing company will provide you with the opportunity to share your creative ideas and experience in our relaxed, friendly and sociable work environment with full support from senior patent attorneys. Our clients’ industries are varied too, giving you exposure to a variety of interesting new technologies. Our clients’ requirements range from very early-stage guidance to IP strategy work for large corporate clients, so you will gain a whole host of experience across the many types of work for a patent attorney in a short time – and longer term – as part of a very rewarding career path.
