    Keltie is an innovative and client-focused IP firm with an award-winning working environment and an enviable mix of clients, who admire our commercial approach.

Your contributions and ideas will be heard, and your personality will be celebrated. We operate as one team throughout the firm.

    Experience at Keltie

    Keltie’s training focuses on gaining knowledge and experience through exposure to real attorney work. Our trainees are included in a wide range of interesting and demanding IP matters from the outset. Qualified attorneys work closely with trainees throughout their training and every job is an opportunity for learning. Trainees are trusted with the responsibility of interacting with clients at an early stage; they are not hidden from view behind a partner’s signature and can take ownership of their own work with pride, enjoying the satisfaction of building valuable client relationships from day one.


    Trainees work in different client teams across many specialist practices, and across the IP lifecycle, including patent drafting, patent prosecution, IP strategy and contentious matters. Although one partner has oversight of a trainee’s workload and development, trainees will work with many attorneys across the firm, gaining a great breadth of experience.


    At Foundation level, trainees can choose between the Foundation examinations or the Bournemouth University course, both complemented by an in-house seminar series. At Finals level, trainees are encouraged to tackle exams at a pace that suits them. Exam-focused tutorials are available in-house and each trainee is provided with a budget and leave for external courses. The combination of early exposure to a wide variety of work, frequent input from qualified attorneys, and tutorial support gives rise to consistently excellent performances from our trainees.
