Engineering / Electronics Patent Attorney - Edinburgh

We’re looking for a patent attorney with the ability to handle engineering and/or electronics subject-matter, to be based in our central Edinburgh office.

Our clients appreciate the high quality of work which we produce, and tend to stay with us. This is enabling the steady growth of our firm such that we’ve just moved to larger offices and are expanding our fee earner team.

If you can, or have the potential to, carry out high quality patent work, then we would be interested in talking with you to explore whether you might fit within our team. You may or may not be the finished article just yet. If you’re not we can help you develop. Ultimately we need patent attorneys who have the intellectual ability to analyse and interpret complex technical information, can think laterally whilst paying attention to detail, and have excellent written English skills, empathy, interpersonal skills and commercial awareness to be able to advise clients.

You may be of finals standard, or part-qualified. You may be more experienced and aspiring to a director-level position. You may be less experienced and seeking an environment to develop yourself and your career. You may be frustrated that your training to date has not been up to scratch, and wish to benefit from the training and mentoring which we can provide to develop your drafting, prosecution, contentious, client-facing, management, or business strategy skills.

In any event, we can offer an exciting opportunity to be part of a growing firm, and prospects for the right candidate are excellent.

Please apply with your CV and covering email, addressed to Alistair Hindle, to: careers@hindles.co.uk or call Alistair on 0131 243 0660 for an informal chat.
