Intellectual Property Solicitor sought to join global giant UTC Aerospace Systems as their lead Intellectual Property Lawyer for Europe.

Our customers include original equipment manufacturers that build aircraft and helicopters, engine manufacturers, and airlines, as well as defence agencies and contractors. Our commitment is to help them develop and maintain safer, lighter, more reliable and more efficient aircraft and other platforms.

This is a role that will be shaped by the person that takes on the challenge! Reporting into the Director of Legal Affairs Europe, and working as part of an established and cohesive legal team, you will:

? Assist in the management, protection, exploitation and strategic direction of our IP portfolio encompassing advising on; patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyright law and associated litigation;

? Work closely with inventors and outside counsel in preparing domestic and international patent applications;

? Draft and negotiate various IP agreements relating to development, licensing, technical services, and non-disclosure and other agreements with an IP component.

As well as a thorough understanding of Intellectual Property law gained in a leading private practice law firm or in-house, you will ideally have experience of working with clients in the technology or engineering sectors. Driven and enthusiastic, you will be dedicated to providing a highly professional legal service. In turn, you will be rewarded with an exciting working environment and long-term prospects as well as the opportunity to be involved in the strategic development of UTC.
