High-Tech Patent Attorneys (part & fully qualified) - EIP Digital - Bath & Cardiff
Bath

Due to increased client demand, EIP Digital is seeking additional patent attorneys for the EIP West group, across the Bath & Cardiff offices.

Building on recent success, EIP Digital is looking to expand to keep up with the pace of client demand.

Attorneys who have passed, or are exempt from, their foundation papers are of interest but we are also actively looking for attorneys up to and including senior associates.

Experience of working on IP in the electronics field is essential with a background in electronic engineering or related subjects preferred. There is a healthy mix of direct client and foreign associate work on offer and attorneys can expect a broad mix of technical subject matter.

Our recently refurbished Bath & Cardiff offices offer a modern, dynamic environment in which attorneys at all levels are thriving. You may already be based locally to one of these offices, but whether you are seeking a move to a bustling capital city or a historic spa town, the EIP West group has something to offer.

If you are interested in this role, have the requisite expertise but are interested in one of our other offices, do get in touch. Opportunities exist across our 4 UK offices.

Senior Associate - EIP Dynamics - London or Bath
London

EIP Dynamics is seeking a senior associate client to take on a lead role managing work on behalf of one of the team's largest client.

EIP Dynamics is a rapidly growing part of the EIP team. It works with large multi-national entities who are typically in aeronautical companies, logistics clients and consumer goods manufacturers.

There is a new requirement for a Senior Associate candidate, with an anticipated PQE range of 3-5 years post-dual qualification, to act as an internal manager for one of our larger clients. This will involve handling patent prosecution yourself but also working with the various fee earners within our firm and the client to allocated and supervise workloads.

You will be an established patent attorney with existing experience managing a range of mechanical and engineering inventions through the prosecution process. You may also have some experience of supervising or mentoring though formal line management responsibility is not essential for this role. Experience of working on large client accounts would be helpful, though any experience of direct client work is likely to be viewed favourably.

For those seeking to progress, there are tangible opportunities for advancement as the firm continues to grow.

Senior Associate - EIP Digital - Nationwide
London

A significant position in the EIP Digital group, this is a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Associate or aspirational Associate to develop their skills at the coalface of some exciting direct client relationships.

The successful attorney will handle a mixture of work. This will include drafting and prosecution work but there is also a chance to combine a prosecution caseload with some exciting work in litigation support where the opportunity allows.

We are looking for a candidate who can offer expertise in electronics matters and who is familiar with technologies in the software and wireless / telecoms sectors, though all backgrounds will be considered. Due to EIP’s predominantly direct client base, experience in handling drafting & prosecution on behalf of direct clients would be advantageous. This role will also include an element of client care and the successful attorney will have the chance to mange client accounts, both interfacing with the client themselves and coordinating the EIP team internally to ensure high levels of service delivery.

For those outside London, our state-of-the-art IT and communication systems mean we can consider attorneys for any of our UK offices.

And it is not just our IT! With stylish modern offices, a smart casual dress policy, a generous bonus structure and a team of outgoing, supportive colleagues, come and see why EIP is truly "Better; different"!

Patent Paralegal - London
London

Patent Paralegal required for our growing national team of patent support professionals.

Within a national group of paralegals, the patent support team in London remains at the heart of our business, providing administrative and PA support to our highly skilled team of fee earners.

Paralegals work closely with their allocated Fee Earner(s), dealing with secretarial and administrative tasks and allowing their Fee Earner(s) to make the best use of their time.

Our unique system of allocating attorneys to paralegals means you are never overloaded with an excessive number of fee earners allowing you to focus on delivering a high quality service.
