Job title
Trade Mark Partner, London

Trade Mark Partner, London

This is a leadership role for a leading UK Trade Mark practice. We would expect suitable candidates will have considerable experience of both managing teams and developing business. Therefore, you are likely to be an existing full Equity Partner or a Salaried/Fixed Share Partner with management responsibility.

There is considerable infrastructural support on offer and you will be working with a high-quality team with a diverse mix of clients including many household names. However, the department needs a Partner who can streamline the way work is done, allocate resources and maximise commercial potential from the existing client base as well as developing new connections.

The role would likely be best suited to a qualified Trade Mark attorney from a private practice background. However, candidates from industry with considerable management experience and/or solicitors who have had a primary focus on trade mark prosecution may also be considered.

As this is a Partnership position you will join the Partnership immediately but there will need to be discussions on how this will be accommodated. As a result of this the firm can be highly flexible on remuneration packages. A client following is certainly not essential but would be desirable but the initial priorities of the role are more focused on organisation than business development (but this will change over time).

The firm is keen to support interests and initiatives so overseas business development trips, international conference attendance and other ideas you may have will be keenly encouraged. At this stage attorneys at Senior Associate level or below are less likely to be considered because they will not have enough management experience. However, if you do feel that you can demonstrate your capabilities in this area you are very welcome to get in touch. For existing Partners, we appreciate that leaving an equity arrangement can be very difficult and we will provide as much support as we can to walk you through the process and advise on any tax and/or legal implications to the best of our ability.
