Part Qualified Patent Attorney, Electronics/Engineering, London
Moving before qualification is a lot easier than you may think. You don’t have to pay back any training costs (your new employer will take care of that), an early move won’t reflect badly on your career later down the line and there’s plenty of time to settle in to your new role before picking up your exams. You’ll have a say in what shape your training takes, for example if you prefer to focus on academic based learning rather than taking the lead with clients straight away, and you’ll have plenty of one-on-one time with the Partners and other fee earners to help support you along the way.
