Job Description

Life Sciences Associate - Oxford

The Client
Our client, a leading international law practice with offices in the UK and US is looking for an associate to join their commercial IP team. Ranked highly in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners, the team is described as both thorough and professional with leading individuals representing a variety of high profile clients. The head of the group is one of only six UK lawyers highly recommended for patent licensing in IAM 1000: The World's Leading Patent Practitioners. They are also a Chambers UK leading expert and rated in Band 1 for Intellectual Property by both Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

The Opportunity
Our client now wishes to appoint a bright and ambitious solicitor to join their existing life sciences team, with an opportunity to take a pivotal position in the sector group. The role will involve commercial transactions with a strong emphasis on intellectual property for the pharmaceutical/biotech/medical devices sector.

The Candidate
The individual should be a commercial, transactional lawyer with a strong grounding in intellectual property (in particular patents), ideally, with experience of the pharmaceutical/biotech/medical devices sector and, preferably, a relevant science background. A good understanding of the regulatory environment for pharmaceuticals and medical devices would also be advantageous for this role.

The successful candidate should be a keen business developer experienced in networking and marketing with a good track record of developing new contacts and converting them into loyal clients.

Our client's preference is that the new Associate will join the existing team in Oxford, primarily looking to win work from Oxford, Thames Valley and London, and to assist with the development of life sciences work in the Cambridge office; however, consideration will also be given to an appointment based in London or their other UK offices.
