Elkington and Fife LLP are proud to provide a high quality service to our clients in all aspects of intellectual property protection. We have a particular expertise in high-level opposition and contentious work, especially at the EPO. We have also been very successful at delivering drafting services directly for a variety of large corporate clients. These strengths are balanced with work for an interesting variety of national and international clients operating in a wide range of technical disciplines.
The firm was established in 1927 and operates as a limited liability partnership, with offices in London and Sevenoaks. Each trainee can expect to work closely with more than one partner and to be exposed to all aspects of work. Our relatively limited recruitment means that successful trainees can expect a long-term future within the firm.
We seek trainees with an excellent technical background to deal with a broad range of subject matter, the drive to succeed and push our practice forward, together with an excellent command of English. Proficiency in German and/or French would be an advantage. We welcome applications from new graduates and especially from applicants having research or development experience.
Training is given high priority, both through a close working relationship between a trainee and others in the team, as well as through external preparatory courses and internal seminars.
