Job title
Biotechnology Patent Attorney – Nearly/Newly Qualified

In recent times of uncertainty this firm has quietly been growing from strength to strength and is now in need of an additional team member for one of their busy offices in the South. The role is expected to help manage the existing portfolio of work, as well as expanding the business further through your own and wider team’s efforts. The firm is well known for its expertise in biotechnology and the surrounding sectors, and has strong ties (and even an office) in Europe. 

The role will be working closely alongside a prominent Partner in one of the firm’s main hubs of activity for biotech subject matter, and offers a really interesting range of work including a significant amount of direct client work and complex contentious matters. The clients range from local start-ups to larger international players, particularly in the fields of antibodies/immunology, gene editing and gene therapy.

Ideally, candidates will be nearly/newly qualified with a background in biological sciences, biochemistry, genetics, immunology or a related discipline. The work can be highly sensitive and deal with some challenging technical subject matter so it is essential that you will have at least three years’ experience and be comfortable really getting involved in the commercial side of your clients’ IP. 

Given the current climate the firm has really invested in remote working and plan to continue this moving forward so the working environment will be a little different to begin with. You will of course meet with your colleagues face to face as regularly as is safely possible and the technical set up and support will allow for as much virtual communication as is necessary, both for in depth strategy meetings and a quick virtual coffee.
