Job description

This UK firm are currently looking an NQ-4pqe Patent Litigation associate to join their Patents team in London.

Their international Patents group is recognised as one of the largest and best in Europe. They have a strong European team and have capability to act for clients in all the main jurisdictions of the new Unified Patent Court. Highly experienced in both contentious and non-contentious patent matters, they also have a wealth of experience in advising knowledge-based and technology-rich businesses across numerous industries, including pharma, biotechnology, chemicals, medical devices and equipment, automotive, telecoms, electronics and software.

This role will mainly focus on contentious matters; though for the right candidate there may be opportunities to handle non-contentious patent matters too. The contentious work consists of High Court patent litigation and advising clients pre-action, plus potentially assisting with coordinated multi-jurisdictional disputes. The Patents Group has also acted on a number of landmark patents cases and there will be opportunities to be closely involved in such work. Typically, their patent litigation work is in the life sciences, electronics/telecoms and mechanical/engineering sectors. Potential non-contentious work includes drafting agreements (such as licences, research and development agreements, and distribution agreements), regulatory advice, due diligence and corporate support in the context of M&A and other transactions.

Ideally you will have a scientific background and have at least 50% post-qualification experience of patents work.
