Why do we want you?
Williams Powell are a growing firm with sufficient work to become larger still in partnership with the right people. We are committed to promotion from within, and seek trainees with the potential to become the qualified attorneys and partners of the future. Technical background is less important than flair; if you have the ability to grasp complex scientific concepts and to express them succinctly on paper and orally then we want you to help us build our firm.
Why should you come to Williams Powell?
We suspect that you will be more interested in the future of our firm than its history. Williams Powell offer an environment where you will be supported, taken seriously, and seen as an investment rather than an impediment. We are a young partnership which believes that it is possible to be both socially relaxed and professionally serious. We are flexible in our approach, rigorous in our application, and more interested in outcome than peripherals.
We are looking to recruit and train an enthusiastic graduate trainee with a 2:1 or above in engineering (electrical, computer or mechanical), telecommunications or a related discipline (not life sciences please). It would be advantageous to be able to demonstrate some knowledge or experience of the commercial realities of the business world: patents are commercial tools and should not be divorced from commercial context.
