Candidates at Cleveland Scott York
An excellent academic record, including a good honours degree in science or engineering is a prerequisite for patent attorneys. We are looking for team players with a flexible, proactive and confident approach. Excellent written and verbal communications skills are essential, as are high levels of accuracy and an eye for detail. We expect to recruit one or two new patent trainees every year; we tend to select trainee trade mark attorneys from amongst our law graduate paralegals, but may use IP Careers to advertise.View Website
