Our specialist consultants within our Patent and Trade Mark Division advise on roles within private practices, law firms and industry, whether the technical background sought is in Life Sciences (Chemistry, Biotech, Pharmaceutical), Engineering or Electronics. The current market is 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 where it is more strategic or commercially sensitive. This may occur when a practice or company is looking at succession planning for potential retirements or considering growth plans in response to confidential client demand. Similarly, 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 role you decide on 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, ensuring that you have the widest choice available, as well as the opportunity to compare and contrast them with advice from our expert consultants.
