You’ve read the careers guide section, hopefully you now know what patent and trade mark attorneys do and that lots of firms have a long history and are a great place to work. All firms seem to offer similar benefits and training.
However, think again. In the right environment, being a patent or trade mark attorney is an exciting and rewarding career. Forresters provide that environment and experience to our trainees and attorneys. We stand out from the crowd in everything we do and that’s why our clients value our work.
We see every new case as a challenge. We always think about how we approach problems and work with our clients to find the best solution for them that adds value to their business. That’s what keeps clients coming back to us. We have the same philosophy in our approach to training our attorneys within Forresters, which is reflected in our excellent exam success rates.
As part of the firm’s “clear direction” ethos, you will receive dedicated plain English training, which will help you to write in direct, jargon-free language. This is a great help when liaising with clients and colleagues, and a transferable skill which will improve communication of all kinds.
So who are we looking for at Forresters?
You must be as passionate as we are about technology and providing a great service to our clients. You’ll need to be a well-rounded person who works well in teams and enjoys problem solving.
In return you will have excellent career prospects and an environment that will help you fulfil your potential. Over 75% of our partners began their patent careers as trainees at Forresters. We place a high value on quality training and we fully fund attendance on training courses. We like to play to our strengths and we will provide you with the support to develop.
