The firm has been established for over one hundred years and enjoys an enviable reputation within the IP profession both domestically and abroad. We are delighted to continually be ranked as a “Leading Firm” by the Legal 500 UK Edition. 

We are a Partner-led firm with a clear focus on the provision of high-quality, commercially focused advice that is bespoke to individual clients’ needs. Our Partners and Associates work alongside professionals from our business support functions to set the long and short-term business strategies and plans for the firm, and we are now seeking a pro-active and experienced Business Systems Developer to play a leading role in future IP systems developments to support the drive to achieve efficiency and operational excellence across the firm.

This is an excellent opportunity for a suitably qualified developer looking to develop their career within the IP sector and to make a significant contribution to the ongoing success of the firm. We would welcome applications from systems developers ideally with experience of IP, but more importantly an enthusiasm for learning and a track record of translating business software requirements into workable programming code.

  • practical and demonstrable experience of records and workflow systems, document management and financial systems
  • ideally have experience of IP records systems such as Inprotech
