Firm history and structure
Mewburn Ellis is a limited liability partnership (LLP) and is one of the larger firms of patent attorneys in the country with offices in Bristol, Cambridge, London, Manchester, and Munich. We continue to grow rapidly and have a young age profile. While we take our work seriously, the firm is still a relaxed and informal place to work.
Range of client services
We advise clients about patents, trademarks, designs and industrial copyright and are involved in work in emerging fields of technology, due diligence work and substantial numbers of oppositions. Our clients range from universities and start-up companies to major international companies based in Europe, North America and Japan.
We recruit a reasonably large number of graduates each year and have an excellent track record in getting trainees through the professional examinations. Our trainees rotate between working for different partners in at least three of our offices (presently not including our Munich office) so that they are exposed to working in different subject areas and for a range of clients. In addition to learning at work and on our internal training scheme, there are also opportunities to attend external courses, in particular the QMUL Certificate in Intellectual Property course, and training seminars for EPO exams in Strasbourg.
After qualification, many of our newly qualified attorneys have been on extended working visits to other countries, including the USA, Japan and China, to continue their professional development.
We are keen to continue expanding the firm and the partnership and are interested in hearing from motivated and entrepreneurial candidates with the skills needed to qualify as patent or trade mark attorneys.View Mewburn Ellis LLP's Website
