Established in the 1870s, Page White and Farrer is one of the leading firms of specialist patent and trade mark attorneys in Europe. We have a wide range of clients from well-known blue chip organisations; to lone inventors and start-ups, where our advice can make a material difference to the success of the company. We also work with a diverse range of technology, making the work as varied as it is interesting.
We have a friendly and supportive atmosphere, exemplified by our dress-down policy, and our flexible starting hours, with the opportunity to work from home at more senior levels. Our working environment is particularly suited to self-motivated individuals that are looking for a proactive role both within the development of the firm itself and with clients. Our approach is dynamic and progressive where new ideas are always welcome. Lastly, we pride ourselves on the approachable nature of everyone in the firm, from trainees to directors alike.
The firm has a main office located a short distance from Kings Cross and Chancery Lane in central London, and an office in Munich, with secondment opportunities available in the Munich office for more experienced trainee levels and above.
Our trainees qualify as both UK and European patent attorneys. Each new trainee is able to choose to attend either Queen Mary University or University of Bournemouth to complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Intellectual Property Law, gaining exemption from the UK foundation exams. We have a good record in passing exams and provide in-house tutorials, plus CIPA memberships.
We recruit throughout the year, in the field of computer science, electronic engineering, physics, biochemistry, chemistry, and related disciplines. We are particularly looking for candidates with experience in fields related to artificial intelligence. We welcome application from those with a PhD, and are looking for well-rounded individuals with excellent communication skills.
