    About Us

    Dummett Copp is an expanding firm of patent and trade mark attorneys at Martlesham Heath, Ipswich. Established for over 35 years, our direct clients range from start-ups to multinationals, in the UK and abroad. We have an excellent network of foreign associates and a wide range of incoming agency work.

    Our culture 

    To provide a high level of service and value for money, we spend time with clients, listening to them and understanding their needs. We invest in regular IP audits, visits to their business or workplace, and customised client relationship management software.

    Our attorneys are approachable, supportive and responsive. Dummett Copp have an excellent team of friendly support staff assisting the professional staff in all day-to-day activities.


    Recruiting highly capable people is important for any business. More important is how people are empowered to accomplish productive work that contributes to business goals. Trainees learn from external courses and private study, but mainly from working on client matters with an attorney. The firm has a good record of training and mentoring junior colleagues. Most of our partners trained and qualified with the firm.

    Everyone needs a sensible work/life balance. The nature of a trainee’s work at Dummett Copp can be demanding at times when professional examinations loom. We want trainees to progress through the exams at a pace that suits them. We offer a range of benefits and flexible working and a mix of remote and in-office working.

    What we are looking for

    We welcome speculative applications for trainee or qualified positions for those with a good first or postgraduate degree in science or engineering. The ability to understand and deal with a broad range of technical subject matter is a key skill for a patent attorney, as is an excellent command of English. Proficiency in German and/or French is an advantage. Patent work requires good organisational skills and the ability to work under pressure and to meet deadlines.
