Barker Brettell
Job title
Patent Attorneys, Birmingham or Southampton

So why Barker Brettell?

We urgently need experienced patent attorneys to work in either Birmingham or Southampton to help our 50 strong fee earning team deliver the great service that clients expect from us.

The Midlands is the heart of the UK, jam packed with vibrant cities, bustling towns and beautiful countryside. If you’re a patent attorney looking for a warm and friendly welcome and a great standard of living, then the Midlands could very well be the place for you.  Alternatively you may desire a change of lifestyle and move to the coast, working out of our modern offices right on Southampton marina.

Specifically, we’re looking for enthusiastic, outgoing and hard-working attorneys with significant experience in the fields of engineering, physics and/or software/electronics. For each technology we need candidates at finals level or newly qualified through to several years’ post qualified experience. You’ll have the opportunity to work with a range of clients, from large industrial clients to SMEs, leading UK universities and overseas IP firms.

We’re a down to earth team with a flexible approach to our work. We’re strong believers in a great work/life balance with the possibility of flexible working, enhanced by a comprehensive benefits package including bonus, contributory pension, private medical insurance, permanent health insurance, life insurance, on site car parking or travel loan.

If successful, you will work closely with a lead Partner and proactively contribute towards the development of the firm. While there is an existing portfolio of work ready and waiting, attorneys will have the opportunity and support to grow their own portfolio of clients to become independently busy over time.

Very competitive salaries, dependent on experience.
