Commercial law firm in London, listed in the directories for the work it does in Intellectual Property law is seeking to recruit an IP/Patent Litigation Solicitor or Barrister of 2 or more years’ PQE/Call. The full-service IP practice 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 successful candidate will be a strong IP litigator who is interested in focusing on patents (however, they would also be interested in those candidates looking for a broader IP litigation spread). The team is rapidly expanding so this role would suit someone who is looking to be part of an exciting dynamic team. 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 of interest (but not a necessity). Due to the role being client facing you will need to have confidence, sound judgment, good interpersonal skills and a proactive drive to take on responsibility.
