The firm

Celebrating 125 years of excellence in IP law in 2017, Hoffmann Eitle is one of the oldest and largest intellectual property law firms in Europe. The firm has full-service offices in both London and Munich, with additional offices in Düsseldorf, Milan, Madrid and Hamburg. Our high standing amongst the leading IP firms in Europe is built upon providing clients with top quality IP legal services.

Hoffmann Eitle’s clients are mainly large multinational companies, the majority of which are based in America and Japan. Both our London and Munich offices have English as their principal working language.

The size of Hoffmann Eitle ensures that we can provide counsel to clients in all areas of technology. We have an unrivalled reputation for advocacy in inter partes hearings at the European Patent Office.

Job prospects

In the last decade, the firm has expanded rapidly. We now have 90 qualified attorneys with a further 37 technical assistants at various stages of training. We have much to offer the right candidate: we provide first class training, carried out under the close supervision of highly skilled attorneys; our trainees have a choice of studying for the Certificate in IP Law at Queen Mary University of London, or taking the Institute foundation examinations; and our London trainees spend six months in our Munich office, allowing them to attend hearings at the EPO.

Hoffmann Eitle provides highly competitive remuneration packages to their trainees. The steady growth of the partnership reflects our desire to retain the many excellent graduates that we have recruited and trained.
