Careers Information

We are a growing firm of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys and recruit regularly

We have two live vacancies:

(1) Qualified UK Trade Mark Attorney

We would like to hire a qualified Chartered Trade Mark Attorney to work in and further develop our trade mark practice. We are looking for candidates who are fully qualified, with excellent communication and legal skills, and who have a detailed and practical understanding of the way in which trade marks fit into a business context. The role will involve taking over management of existing portfolios, working with new clients and developing the firm's trade mark practice. Long-term prospects are excellent as we seek to develop a larger trade mark department. Our culture is welcoming, collaborative and ambitious, with a focus on working well together to achieve the excellent outcomes expected by our clients.

Our preference is for this role to be delivered from our Edinburgh office, once office working resumes, although we are very well set up for remote and flexible working, which we had embraced even before the current pandemic, and so it would be sufficient to be able to attend client meetings in Edinburgh when required. We would also consider Liverpool as a base. We would consider a flexible working arrangement, including a reduced working day, for the right candidate.

(2) Chemical Patent Attorney

We would like to hire a recently qualified or final-standard trainee patent attorney to work with Robert Gregory in our chemistry group. The successful candidate will have a strong technical background, excellent written and oral communication skills and an attention to detail. Long term prospects are excellent as the firm continues to grow. We currently have offices in Liverpool or Edinburgh, and are very well set up for remote and flexible working, which we had embraced even before the current pandemic.

Speculative Applications
