European Patent Attorney, Lancashire
We are looking to appoint a recently qualified European Patent Attorney to join our growing IP department. The ideal candidate should have a degree in chemistry or a related discipline, along with patent experience gained in the chemical field.
Reporting to the Head of Intellectual Property, the Attorney will be a key player in the delivery of the Company’s IP strategy, and therefore drive, enthusiasm and excellent commercial acumen are essential to being successful in the role.
The role requires a high degree of autonomy and you will be expected to educate, advise and support leadership teams and project managers in your areas of the business. You should have wide experience across all aspects of IP, including freedom to operate, patent prosecution, drafting, and contentious matters. Experience in the negotiation of IP related agreements would be an advantage.
