    Want to make a difference?

    Of course you do. And you won’t find a better place to do so than Beck Greener. It’s not just that the quality of our work is so high, though that’s part of it. From early on in your career with us you could be working with some of the world’s most innovative companies, protecting and developing patentable inventions in fields as diverse as household consumer goods, business processes, software, games and complex drug formulations. Or you could be working with individual creators and entrepreneurs, helping to evaluate and safeguard what might be ground-breaking inventions, or even supporting clients through complex High Court litigation. We also have a strong trade mark practice.

    It’s also about our culture. With modern offices in the heart of London’s legal district, and a European office near the EUIPO in Alicante, we are big enough to win our share of the most exciting, significant work, but small enough to keep that ‘boutique’ feel clients value so much. At Beck Greener everyone counts; everyone’s voice is heard.

    A (Beck) Greener world

    Culture is nothing, though, unless it’s founded on principles. So, at Beck Greener we don’t just aim to make a difference to our clients’ businesses with a high quality, distinctive service offering robust, commercial advice. We also try to make a positive contribution to our profession, our local community and the environment. That’s why we launched our ‘Greener Beck Greener’ scheme in 2014, since when we’ve reduced our electricity consumption by 45%, winning the Camden Climate Change Alliance’s ‘Cutting Carbon’ mark of achievement every year.

    It’s also why we developed our award-winning STEM: Branching Out project, which seeks to inspire and encourage young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to consider careers in STEM sectors. We work to support students and promote STEM careers in general, and in the IP profession in particular. We are part of the STEM Learning UK “STEM Ambassador” programme and are Ambassadors for Heart of the City, helping other SMEs to set up their own community or sustainability schemes.

    What we can do for you

    We value our trainees very highly. Training is taken very seriously, and all trainees are directly supervised by partners in a supportive and friendly environment. A number of our most recent patent partners started their careers at Beck Greener.

    As a trainee patent attorney at Beck Greener, you will be given full training and support to qualify as a Chartered Patent Attorney and European Patent Attorney. This includes mentoring and supervision from partners, in-house tutorials, external lectures and attending one of the courses to obtain the relevant postgraduate certificate.

    And what we need in return

    We seek to recruit only the very best graduates who will work to our exacting standards. Obviously this means that, for patent attorneys, we expect either a first or a 2:1 degree (or postgraduate qualification) in an appropriate technical discipline, such as chemistry, biochemistry or biotechnology, physics, electrical or mechanical engineering, electronics, or related disciplines. Trade mark trainees are usually selected from candidates with at least a good first degree and a legal qualification. Most of all, though, we are looking for enthusiasm – the desire to learn about clients’ businesses and inventions, to provide high quality commercial advice, and to make a difference. If this sounds like you then we’d love to talk.
