We are one of Europe’s leading patent and trade mark attorney firms, with teams in London, Hertfordshire, the Thames Valley and Munich. Established in 1927, we have protected some of the most important inventions of the last 100 years and worked with many of the most exciting brand-led companies.
Our clients, which range from multi-national corporations to start-ups, provide an excellent opportunity for a varied and commercially important caseload.
We are a progressive firm with a knowledge-sharing culture and a reputation for excellence in training and professional development. We provide hands-on training on live cases from day one, where you will be able to make a real impact. We have an in-house package of training seminars and also put trainees through courses run by top external providers to help get them through the qualifying exams.
We have adopted a hybrid-working approach, so there will be opportunities for remote working, as well as from our offices. We are an equal opportunities employer and encourage applicants from backgrounds which are under-represented in the UK patent sector. We are committed to creating a work environment where everybody feels welcome and included and can enjoy a good work-life balance, as well as the opportunities to excel.
We are recruiting two trainee patent attorneys in 2022- one from an Electronics, Engineering or Physics background and one with a Chemistry background.
We also have a vacancy for a paid internship, in conjunction with one of our major clients, in our London office in Summer 2022. This would suit someone with an Electronic Engineering/Physics background. We welcome applications from candidates who may require workplace adjustments.
