We are looking for a Part-qualified Patent Attorney with a background in Biotechnology to join our leading Chemistry & Life Sciences Practice Group.

Opportunities for career development and training make up a big part of our success. At GJE, we’ll support you to develop your skills and advance your career. We have an unrivalled training programme and a brilliant track record of first time exam success.

Looking for more variety?

You will be involved in drafting and prosecution of UK and European patent applications in a variety of fields including industrial biotechnology, regenerative medicine, immunology and diagnostics.  You will be forging relationships with your clients who will range from domestic and international clients from universities, university spin-outs, and small start-ups to large consumer goods conglomerates, giving you a broad spectrum of interesting work. You will gain experience in a full range of direct client work including oppositions before the EPO and contentious matters, allowing a seamless transition into the Associate role.

We will help you to play to your strengths and develop experience in areas that interest you, which will add value to the business and help us all to build upon its success. We recognise that not everyone has the same aspirations and even those who do may well have different routes to the end goal. So, whether you are natural at bringing in new business, have a passion for training less experienced colleagues, or you prefer the nuts and bolts of what being a patent attorney is all about, you are likely to find a place at GJE.

Our success is down to the people we employ

Our firm has a clearly defined strategic vision for where we are heading and an impressive track record to match. There are around 115 of us in our Broadgate Tower office, so we’re small and friendly enough for you to get to know everyone – but big enough to offer you great career prospects.

We are looking to fit the role to the right person, rather than the person to the role. As such we are open to hearing from candidates at varying stages of qualification.

As well as offering a competitive salary, a wide range of benefits and excellent career development awaits you at GJE.
