IP Solicitor

  • Negotiable
  • Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

We have been instructed on a new role for an Intellectual Property and Commercial Solicitor to join a well-established integrated commercial law firm in one of their Yorkshire offices. Our client is a successful and reputable firm, having been practising law for over 100 years.

Our client is well-established with a strong market presence and multiple offices around the Yorkshire region. They are a corporate and commercial firm that pride themselves on building long term relationships and having a very straight forward approach when it comes to their clients. Our client has a standout reputation and works with an enviable client base.

You will be responsible for running and developing your own caseload with support from the head of the department advising clients on a range of both contentious and non-contentious intellectual property and commercial law matters including commercial contracts, data protection patents, copyright, trademarks and registered and unregistered designs.

You will also develop strong client relationships through understanding their business and having empathy with their needs. There will be opportunities to get involved in business development and marketing both internally across the business and externally to assist the team to further grow their client base.

Our client is looking for someone who is a team player, motivated and able to prioritise a busy workload whilst working to tight deadlines.

In return our client is willing to offer flexibility for the right candidate whether that be part time hours or working from home 2-3 days a week. They may even consider someone who is only looking to be in the office once a week.

The successful candidate should ideally have a minimum of 3 years' PQE with intellectual property and commercial experience, however, this level of experience has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this level but who have the relevant knowledge/experience, together with the enthusiasm for this particular role.

How to Apply:
Having been established for over 20 years, we are experts in legal recruitment. Our strength derives from the fact that we are well-known, well-respected and have developed long-standing bonds with both our clients and candidates, and have become an authority on all aspects of legal recruitment.
