Our clients are our top priority. They include many well-known household and industrial names who expect the highest standards of expertise and professionalism and we work hard to deliver that. It helps that we love the intellectual challenge of being patent attorneys and that we never lose the buzz that comes from being at the cutting edge of scientific and technological developments. Our colleagues are our next priority. We offer interesting and rewarding careers in a friendly, supportive and well-resourced working environment. Our emphasis is on team work, good communication and on developing individuals to their full potential. We respect and encourage diversity and equal opportunities and believe in a healthy work/life balance.
We are proud of the strong reputation that we have built up over 160 years. We are changing and expanding all the time, always looking at new ways to deliver and develop our core services. Our recent expansion to our litigation service following Haseltine Lake’s merger with Kempner & Partners is a perfect example of this. There’s a strong international element to our work and we are extending our reach within Europe and beyond – providing great opportunities for travel and interaction with other professionals across the globe. We are using IT to extend quality safeguards and improve efficiencies. We see a wealth of new challenges and opportunities on the horizon and are confident of our ability to keep evolving in response to them.
Where might you fit in?
If you are careful, energetic and keen to learn and you have a top degree in a relevant technical field then we are keen to hear from you. We can provide you with a strong training experience, working closely with our senior attorneys to develop the core skills of a patent attorney. You will learn both on the job and alongside your peer group in ‘HLK Academy’, our dedicated in-house training school. You will enjoy financial and practical support for your professional exams. And after you qualify we will continue to offer you professional development opportunities throughout your career with us. A significant majority of our partners trained with Haseltine Lake Kempner, proving that if you have the aptitude and the commitment to quality you can go all the way.
