My client is a Legal 100 firm based in London that is tier 1 in the media & entertainment sector. Due to growth, the firm is looking to develop its IP Team further and is seeking a talented IP associate solicitor to join the team.
 
You will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of IP litigation tasks at various stages of cases, along with non-contentious IP work, ie drafting IP agreements (licences, settlement agreements, etc.).
 
Within this role, you will have the chance to work with the firm's biggest clients, whilst maintaining a very healthy work-life balance. 
 
Day to day activities:
  • IP disputes and litigation which should include trademarks, designs and copyright, but preferably also patents (although a science background is not necessary)
  • Costs budgeting
  • Evidence and trial
  • Drafting IP agreements (licences, settlement agreements, etc) 
  • Handling trademark oppositions and domain name disputes
  • Advertising clearance and disputes.
Requirements:
  • 3-5 years' PQE
  • A strong academic background (an Oxford IP Diploma would be desirable but not essential)
  • To be at ease with digital technology
  • Work independently under pressure and progress matters without constant supervision
  • “Pitch in” when working on larger matters and cases
  • Be confident and sociable when dealing directly with clients.
