Home > Patent Attorney Jobs
Our specialist consultants advise on the top jobs in private practices, law firms and industry, whether their technical backgrounds are in Life Sciences (Chemistry, Biotech, Pharmaceutical), Engineering or Electronics. The current market is relatively robust and we are consistently seeing opportunities open up, many of which we advertise here on our website and in the CIPA Journal.
However, there are commonly circumstances where recruitment is more confidential and may not be advertised, for example when a practice or company is keen to keep an opening under wraps until they can appoint a suitable candidate. Equally, a Partner or Qualified Patent Attorney may be looking to make a strategic career move into a particular type of role or at a particular level, rather than applying to an advertised position. In these situations, we will discuss your specific Patent job requirements in the strictest confidence, work with you to understand exactly what you’re looking for (as well as what you’re not!), identify potential opportunities and introduce you to the most suitable contacts. With our guidance and understanding of what each party is looking to achieve, we can ensure that the Patent Attorney particular role is tailored specifically to you.
As well as acting for Partners, Directors and Qualified Attorneys, we regularly recruit at Part-Qualified and Trainee Attorney levels. Although we will advertise these job roles when required, they can often be filled before the need arises. If you contact us with your requirements and register your details early, we can then alert you to any new jobs immediately, whether or not they require advertising.
Working in this Important Sector
There can be many benefits to a career, or part of a career, in industry, including a more varied caseload advising on issues and areas beyond your immediate technical expertise . There also tend to be more comprehensive benefits packages – including car, pension, private health, share options, stock units, and gym membership etc . It can also offer a greater work / life balance including flexible hours, part-time and / or home working. For these reasons, industry remains a competitive arena, although the number of Patent jobs is on the increase as companies seek to cut outsourcing costs and handle more of their work in-house.
