ChapmanĀ IP is an entrepreneurial and growing company based in Southampton, Cardiff and Munich. We have five qualified patent attorneys and three trainees, supported by qualified patent administrators and a formalities team.

Our practice and our clients

Chapman IPĀ has an excellent, diverse client base which provides a good mix of direct client contact and overseas work. We specialise not only in patents, but also trademarks, designs, IP infringement and validity advice, and supporting IP litigation. Our attorneys are experienced in managing IP rights for major UK and international companies, and advising on IP strategy, licensing and due diligence.


The role of a patent attorney is suited to engineering and scientific graduates who want to work in the legal profession. Trainees are initially employed as technical assistants before eventually progressing to taking the UK and European professional qualifications.

We typically recruit one or two patent or trademark trainees each year.

Excellent career development opportunities exist within the company. We offer a competitive salary (and bonus) and the chance to work in a friendly modern environment.

We are looking for candidates who are articulate, dynamic and have a strong academic track record. Candidates must also be able to demonstrate good interpersonal skills and attention to detail, along with the ability to express themselves in a clear and logical manner, both orally and in writing.

Full training, at the appropriate level, will be given as you work towards qualifying as a UK and European patent attorney.
