£75,000 - 100,000
IP Litigation Associate
Our client, a leading City firm with one of the largest IP teams in the UK is seeking to hire an IP Litigation Associate to join their highly regarded team.
This team works across a range of sectors including technology, automotive, pharma, betting & gaming, sport, retail, fashion, media, and hospitality.
The role is within the IP Group's Disputes team. It will involve largely advising on a varied range of disputes and related advisory work concerning soft IP (trade marks, designs, copyright and confidential information). As their Patents practice has grown in recent years, there is the opportunity for interested candidates to work on exciting and important patent disputes across a range of technologies. In addition, the candidate will have responsibility for brand management in relation to a small number of portfolios, comprising high-level dispute work at the UKIPO and EUIPO, alongside enforcement and advisory work for those clients.
The team's work also involves advising on some more commercial disputes, to which there will be an IP angle, although the actual claim may be in contract, fraud or tort, such as licensing disputes. There will be a range of general IP advisory work, such as how to minimise the risk of an IP infringement, how best to protect a client's intellectual property, and advice in relation to advertising and related matters.
Suitable candidates will have contentious IP experience gained in private practice.
