This is an excellent opportunity for a junior lawyer looking to progress their career within IP at a leading international firm. This experienced IP team is one of the largest in the UK advising a wide range of blue chip technology, manufacturing, life sciences and retail companies on all aspects of the exploitation and enforcement of their intellectual property rights. This includes advising clients on managing their intellectual property and optimising their returns and investment. It also includes advising on potential collaborations with third parties and on the IP aspects of the sale or purchase of businesses.

A substantial number of the team have science backgrounds in a wide range of disciplines such as life sciences, electronics, physics and chemistry. Coupled with legal expertise, this puts the team as one of the leaders in handling technically challenging patent disputes. In addition, the team has extensive experience of specialist sectors such as electronics, ICT, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, automotive, retail, oil and universities to list but a few.

Many of the matters which the team handles include an international element and there is a considerable knowledge base within the team concerning practices and the variety of ways disputes are handled overseas.

The Role:

- licensing
- R&D agreements

Candidate Requirements:
* At least one years' experience in IP (it is envisaged that the maximum level of qualification required to fulfil the requirements of the role will be c. 5 PQE)
* Experience of and/or enthusiasm for data protection and freedom of information matters will also be desirable but not essential.
