We are open to considering approaches from trade mark attorneys with experience of working in industry. We are also interested in receiving applications from EU nationals with EU qualifications who possess a strong command of the English language.

If you join our firm as a part qualified trade mark attorney, we will support you through to qualification as a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney and European Professional Representative.
