Intellectual Property/ Patent Litigation Associate - City of London - Private Practice

Top tier, Global, law firm is seeking to recruit a talented IP/ Patent Litigator due to continued expansion.

The Firm
Multinational, future focussed firm with 80 offices in 50 countries and over 5000 lawyers worldwide. They combine deep understanding of the sector with a global overview, generating the ability not only to see what's coming, but to help shape it.
The Team

The IP/ Patent Litigation team is a genuine 'one-stop-shop' providing prosecution, litigation and licencing services. The team is staffed with solicitors, barristers, patent attorneys and trade mark attorneys, all of whom work alongside specialist practice managers and patent and trade mark paralegals.

The team acts for leading companies in the Technology, Media & Comms, Life Science & Healthcare, Automotive, Consumer Products, Energy and Mechanical Engineering sectors. The work includes UK litigation as well as coordination of multi-jurisdictional litigation globally, with litigation taking place before the General Court, Court of Appeal, High Court, IP Enterprise Court and UKIPO.

It is an exciting time to join the team, with significant growth planned.
The Role
You will be a strong IP litigator who is interested in focusing on patents (however, the firm would also be interested in those looking for a broader IP litigation spread). The team is rapidly growing so this role would suit someone who is looking to be part of an exciting dynamic team.

Ideally, you will have gained experience of patent litigation at a well respected firm, in particular in the areas of technology and/or life sciences. Previous studies/qualifications within the fields of electronics, engineering, biology, chemistry or pharmacology would also be an advantage (but not a necessity).

Due to the role being client facing you will need to have confidence, sound judgment, good interpersonal and consultancy skills and a proactive drive to take on responsibility.
