Secerna LLP is a progressive and expanding firm of Chartered and European patent attorneys based in York and Newcastle. Although based in the UK, we assist some of the world’s most innovative businesses to protect and enforce their intellectual assets.

We build long-term business relationships with our clients, based on exceptional trust, teamwork and value for money.

The attorneys are grouped by technical background and experience. We have a great depth of technical expertise across a broad range of technologies and in particular in the fields of telecommunications, computer-implemented inventions, oil and gas delivery technologies and assisted and consumer service solutions. In addition, the Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical groups have considerable experience working in the fields of NCEs, bio-therapeutic, nucleic acid-based diagnostics and regenerative medicine.

We regularly provide strategic advice to corporate clients relating to the strength of opposition and national invalidity proceedings and the associated likely impact on a client’s business. We work closely with a number of corporate in-house patent teams to provide an involved, tailored service with the client’s business at its heart. In addition, the attorneys are regularly called upon to consider IP-related contractual issues, including advising on complex licensing matters.

Not all firms of patent and trade mark attorneys are the same: one size doesn’t fit all. Secerna is unique and we appreciate you’ll be an individual too and will bring your own personal skills, areas of interest and unique abilities to our team. At Secerna you will have an exceptional opportunity to further your career within a supportive and friendly environment.

As a trainee patent attorney at Secerna you will be given full training and support as you work towards qualifying as a Chartered and European patent attorney and will work closely with senior attorneys with a track record of successful training.
