Employment Type


Posted about 09 hours ago


A Top Tier UK firm is looking for an experienced and exceptional associate to join their Patent Litigation Practice.

The work will be primarily contentious; though for the right candidate there may be opportunities to handle non-contentious patent matters too. The contentious work consists of High Court patent litigation and advising clients pre-action, plus potentially assisting with coordinated multi-jurisdictional disputes.

Potential non-contentious work includes drafting agreements (such as licences, research and development agreements, and distribution agreements), regulatory advice, due diligence and corporate support in the context of M&A and other transactions.

Depending on experience, the associate will be expected to conduct meetings and calls independently, as well as under supervision. In addition, the associate will often be the primary point of contact when liaising with experts and barristers on contentious matters.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with a varied and high-quality workload within a market-leading team. The team also has an excellent reputation for their collegiate working culture as well as training and development.

The firm offer a flexible working environment and salaries range from £105,000-£120,000.

Ideally, the associate will have a scientific background, though this is not essential. Preferably 50% or more of the candidate\'s post-qualification experience should consist of patent litigation work, and the candidate should have experience of telecoms/electronics patent litigation.
