We are looking for a qualified or finalist level Patent Attorney with a background in Chemistry to join our leading Chemistry & Life Sciences Practice Group.
You will be involved in drafting and prosecution of UK and European patent applications for a range of domestic and international companies including clients who specialise in household consumer goods, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, giving you a broad spectrum of interesting work. You will gain experience in a full range of direct client work including oppositions before the EPO and contentious matters while offering your clients strategic IP advice.
Opportunities for career development and training make up a big part of our success. At GJE, we’ll support you to develop your skills and advance your career.
We will help you to play to your strengths and develop experience in areas that interest you, which will add value to the business and help us all to build upon its success. We recognise that not everyone has the same aspirations and even those who do may well have different routes to the end goal. So, whether you are natural at bringing in new business, have a passion for training less experienced colleagues, or you prefer the nuts and bolts of what being a patent attorney is all about, you are likely to find a place at GJE.
Our success is down to the people we employ
Our firm has a clearly defined strategic vision for where we are heading and an impressive track record to match. There are around 115 of us in our City office, so we’re small and friendly enough for you to get to know everyone – but big enough to offer you great career prospects. Plus you’ll get your own office in the iconic Broadgate Tower.
We are looking to fit the role to the right person, rather than the person to the role. As such we are open to hearing from candidates at varying stages of qualification, although ideally you will have already passed your pre-EQE examinations.
As well as offering a competitive salary, a wide range of benefits and excellent career development awaits you at GJE.
