    EIP is an innovative patent firm with offices in Germany, Sweden, the UK and USA and combines a multidisciplinary team of attorneys, litigators, and commercial lawyers providing advice to clients across the globe.

    In addition to specialising in high-value and complex patent matters, we also offer commercial advice on the exploitation and use of the full range of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs). This includes patents, trademarks, design rights, copyright and others, and assists with ancillary issues arising in relation to data protection and rights of privacy.

    EIP has consistently been recognised by leading industry rankings and awards. For the past five years EIP has been ranked as one of Europe’s Leading Patent Law Firms by the Financial Times in all six technology areas listed. Over the past six years EIP has won both UK and European Patent Disputes Firm of the Year multiple times at the prestigious Managing IP Awards EMEA. Peers and clients have described EIP as having “a great, well-integrated team that operates together to provide…great answers almost instantly”, and as a firm that “has consistently shown an exceptional level of competence and professionalism, with everyone proving to be approachable, responsive and detail-oriented”.

    Every year we look to recruit around 5 Trainee Patent Attorneys to join one of our UK offices and a Litigation Trainee Solicitor to join our London office. We offer trainees the opportunity to interact and liaise directly with clients. The training programme is focused on direct supervision by partners who are leaders in their field, and all trainees benefit from high levels of tuition during qualification. We have developed an ethos of building from within and several of the partners joined the firm as a trainee and have taken advantage of the meritocratic progression philosophy that exists at the firm.

    EIP typically recruits candidates with an excellent undergraduate degree and (optionally) a Masters or PhD. The best candidates enjoy the challenge of complex technical and legal work whilst those who have good written and verbal communication skills also tend to excel. The firm operates a focused yet friendly and flexible working environment with smart, open plan offices and a smart-casual dress code.
