Withers & Rogers is one of Europe’s largest dedicated intellectual property law firms, with offices in London, Bristol, the Midlands, Sheffield and Munich. Established more than 130 years ago, we remain as passionate as ever about making intellectual property work to our clients’ best advantage. Today, our clients include many renowned, innovative organisations from across Europe, North America and Asia.

We operate in four principal practice groups: Electronics, Computing & Physics; Advanced Engineering; Life Sciences & Chemistry, and Trade Marks. We also have a number of specialist practice groups including Higher Education, Clean Technology, Medical Devices and Aerospace & Defence.

Your development
When you start your training at Withers & Rogers, from the get-go you’ll be given the support and guidance you need to succeed and pass your exams to qualify as a chartered UK and European patent attorney or a chartered trade mark attorney.

Throughout your training, you’ll attend courses, lectures and tutorials to give you the very best chance of success. Our own extensive in-house tutorial programme provides regular and structured feedback to trainees as they work towards qualifying.

The main focus of your training, however, will be exposure to a wide variety of work on actual live cases. This is where you will quickly develop your ‘real world’ skills and understanding of the role, as well as the culture and working practices that have led to our firm’s reputation and success. This includes involvement in client meetings, the marketing process, and we encourage membership of networking organisations from early on in the training process.

Who can apply?
We hire graduates with a strong academic record in a relevant subject, but above all, we’re looking for people who can demonstrate a passion for technology. Trainee patent attorneys will need an engineering or science related degree. All trainees need to be able to demonstrate excellent verbal and written communication skills as well as strong commercial awareness.
