Job Description

This highly rated international law firm is looking to hire a junior intellectual property lawyer with a science background, up to circa 1-1.5 PQE to join its compact team in London (February/March 2017 qualifiers will be considered). The focus of this role with be on patent litigation, however there will be plenty of scope to undertake soft IP. Unlike many of the leading boutiques, the offering here is genuinely global, with them undertaking patent litigation in various jurisdictions, including a highly rated team in the Middle East.

The team has ambitious plans for growth, with the two partners who lead the practice being highly regarded within the IP space, and who have a proven track record in growing and developing practices. On a softer note, the ethos in the team is down to earth and relaxed, with there being a sense of fun, working less hours than most of their competitors.

Having a science degree, i.e. biochemistry/psychics etc. is essential, and ideally some patent litigation experience, however candidates with a science degree, who do not have the patent litigation experience will be considered if they can show a real interest and desire in this area.
