Our client is a mid-tier City firm with a strong reputation currently looking for an NQ-2 PQE Associate to join its intellectual property team in London.
The team advises on the full range of IP rights, including trade marks and passing off, copyright and database right, rights in designs, patents and rights in confidential information.

On the non-contentious side, they advise on and negotiate agreements in which IP is the central asset in issue, such as agreements for commercial research and development of industrial technology, licences of resulting new technology, and other licences and assignments of registered and unregistered IP rights.
Key requirements:
  • Qualified solicitor up to 2 years PQE with training seats and/or PQE experience in contentious and non-contentious Intellectual Property matters
  • Strong technical skills and client focus
  • Drive and enthusiasm
  • Commercial awareness
