Why Mewburn Ellis?
Mewburn Ellis is the forward-looking IP firm. We work with organisations building the brands and technologies that will define tomorrow. We help them use their intellectual property to navigate that journey – to imagine, plan, nurture, protect and deliver their innovations to market. Ranked top tier, the firm is synonymous with quality and technical excellence.
What can you expect?
Graduate recruitment is at the heart of our firm and is something we invest a lot of time and energy into. We are renowned in the profession for our training programme and offer a professional education in conjunction with hands-on practical experience. This includes the opportunity to work with diverse and exciting clients in a supportive and relaxed environment.
Our trainees work with at least four partners or senior members of staff. They move between principals about every six months and often this involves a change in geographical location too. After about three years we expect a trainee to have settled into one of our offices to further develop their career.
In addition to learning at work and on our internal training scheme, there are also opportunities to attend external courses, in particular the QMUL Certificate in Intellectual Property course, and training seminars for EPO exams in Strasbourg.
What are we looking for?
We have vacancies across all science disciplines to join us and work towards qualification as a UK and European patent attorney.
We are looking for people with an active mind and a desire to develop new skills. You should have a broad-based interest in science as well as specific knowledge of your particular degree field. Excellent communication skills (especially in writing) are vital. Good people skills and general commercial sense are also beneficial. No prior knowledge of patent law is required.
So, if you’re ambitious, committed, forward-looking and enjoy a challenge, come join us. In exchange we promise you a stimulating and rewarding career, cutting edge work and a chance to be part of our growth story.View Mewburn Ellis LLP's Website
