Part-qualified patent attorney (pharma)

We are looking for a part-qualified patent attorney, with pharmaceuticals experience, to join our chemistry and life sciences practice group.

You will be involved in the drafting and prosecution of UK and European patent applications in a variety of fields including pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, drug reprofiling and formulation sciences.  Much of what you do will involve direct client work, working with multinational corporations, SMEs and individual inventors, giving you a broad spectrum of interesting work.  You will also have the opportunity to gain experience in oppositions before the EPO and other contentious matters.

What’s it like to work here

We are based in modern offices near bustling Liverpool Street and Shoreditch. Our culture is friendly, supportive, and collaborative, and within this environment you will receive excellent training and support, and take on real responsibility from an early stage.  

We recognise that not everyone has the same aspirations and even those who do may well have different routes to the end goal.  We will help you play to your strengths and develop experience in areas that interest you.  So, whether you are natural at bringing in new business, have a passion for training less experienced colleagues, or you prefer the nuts and bolts of what being a patent attorney is all about, we are confident that we will provide you with a great place to work and develop your career.

A competitive salary (reviewed annually and upon exam success), great benefits and perks and a range of social events await the successful candidate.  GJE is a Sunday Times Best Companies Awards star rated organisation – take a look at our careers website to learn about life at GJE.

  • Effective communication skills
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Strong basic skills in drafting, prosecution and searching
  • Good client care skills
  • Commercial awareness
  • Ability to work using own initiative and relatively independently (commensurate with position)

If this sounds like you, apply now with your CV and a covering letter.  We start interviewing and assessing applications as and when we receive them, so we advise you to apply as soon as possible.
