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

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.

Newly Qualified (EPA/CPA) Patent Attorney - High-Tech Electronics - London

Newly-qualified patent attorney needed to support established EIP senior associate with a caseload of high-quality telecoms work.

Working alongside one of the busiest EIP attorneys, this role will handle predominantly telecoms work on behalf of some of the field's leading companies. There will be an opportunity to see the whole patent life cycle including exposure to litigation support work. The caseload is exclusively on behalf of direct clients and so there is a real opportunity to hone the client care skills that may already have started developing.

Candidates should have qualified on a UK and European basis within the last couple of years though finalists or those waiting for exam results will also be considered. A background in electronics work is important as is some exposure and interest in working with telecommunication patents. The role will include an element of litigation support work. There is no requirement that attorneys have exposure to this type of work at the point of application, though an interest in this area would be helpful.

EIP offers an inclusive modern culture where you will work collaboratively with colleagues at all levels. Whilst this role works most closely with one of the senior associates, there is also a chance to work with one of the leading partners at EIP. With server/cloud based systems, a flexible working model is available at EIP and we will happily discuss this with interested applicants.

Senior Associate - EIP Digital - Nationwide

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

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.
