Mathys & Squire is a firm of patent and trade mark attorneys advising on all aspects of intellectual property. We seek to combine technical expertise, specialist legal skills and commercial awareness to help maximise our clients’ rewards from innovation and minimise their risks in bringing that innovation to market. We have been established for over 100 years but have a dynamic approach and progressive culture.
We seek to recruit the very brightest and best graduates with a background in engineering or science. A curiosity about how things work, an analytical mind and first rate communication skills are essential. Our business is focused on providing added value to our clients, so we also look for an appreciation of the commercial implications of intellectual property.
We have an impressive portfolio of clients, from household names to emerging technologies. Our annual graduate intake is increasing and so we have a sufficient number of trainees at each level of qualification that all trainees benefit from the experience of those ahead of them, as well as from the support of others within their peer group. We have an informal and friendly atmosphere; we know that hard work must be balanced with fun so we have a very active Social Committee which organises events from soft ball to quizzes to black tie parties.
We have a good record of helping our trainees to prepare for professional examinations. We run internal tutorials and provide access to external courses. All of our trainees work under the direct supervision of a partner or associate, having exposure to clients from the very earliest stage of their career, and taking more personal responsibility for clients and their cases as they develop.
We recruit with the long-term in mind and our aim is to train those who join us to be future partners of the firm so we have a visible career progression framework. In summary, we like to think that we offer a stimulating environment and a well rewarded career.View Mathys & Squire's Website
