Job Details

You are a part-qualified/finalist Patent Attorney with a specialism in Pharmaceuticals subject matter, looking for a move to a firm that can offer greater visibility with clients, and wider scope of technology too.  You may be on the cusp of qualification for both EPA and CPA status, or have acquired up to 3 years PQE in your current firm or in-house department.

You’re confident in handling core drafting, prosecution and contentious areas of IP, and you possess an appreciation of how IP and regulatory data protection affect the life cycle of a product.  Possessing an innate interest in the commercial aspects of business as well as the IP profession enables you to forge long-standing and committed relationships with clients.

Moreover, you are motivated and confident with long-term career aspirations. If you have a genuine interest in business development, marketing, and networking then this firm can provide the support and infrastructure to exceed your professional expectations.  You will get involved with client pitches and be integral to the growth of the team, and be exposed to a broad range of organic chemistry and pharamceutical subject matter.

This award-winning IP firm are regarded as an employer of choice, maintaining an exemplary reputation for retention and career opportunities.  Industry directories consistently rank them as a Top Tier firm.

They are passionate about diversity and inclusion in the workplace; it’s vital to their business and how they approach challenges differently by offering clients creative and original solutions. A healthy work-life balance has been a cornerstone of their culture for many years, and they run regular wellbeing events, in addition to several clubs and social activities being available to all employees.

If you are looking for more involvement in high-value work with a broad range of clients who care about their IP, working across multiple practice groups, then this opportunity can provide the kind of career defining move you’ve been striving for.

For more information and a detailed brief, please contact James Dawes at: or call 07739 982 766 for an informal conversation.


Whether you are planning a career move, or you are looking to hire permanent or temporary legal talent or you are simply interested in finding out more about the legal marketplace, both in house and in private practice, you have come to the right place.
