    You’ve read the careers guide section; 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, right?

    Think again.  In the right environment, being a patent or trade mark attorney is an exciting and rewarding career.  Forresters provides that environment to all our trainees and attorneys.  We strive to keep our values of ‘one team’, ‘excellence’ and ‘great communication’ at the forefront of everything we do; from our interactions with our clients to making Forresters a great place to work for everyone.

    You will receive dedicated training from a range of our partners and attorneys, and experience working with a wide range of our clients too.  We believe gaining a breadth of experience and exposure to commercial strategy is essential to building a successful career as a fully qualified UK and European patent attorney.
