THE ROLE – IP & Media/Data Protection Paralegal.
 
THE BRIEF – On behalf of Taylor Wessing, G2 Legal is retained to recruit IP & Media/Data Protection Paralegals to work from the new Liverpool office in the heart of the city.
 
You will work from the Liverpool office as part of the wider IP & Media Group.  The size and strength of Taylor Wessing's IP & Media Group, both in the UK and internationally together with the variety of the clients across all business sectors offers outstanding experience of advising on every area of IP and media law.  
 
The firm's IP & Media Group currently comprises around 20 fee earners including six partners, and is supported by about 10 non-fee earners (secretaries and trade mark formalities staff). You will work as part of a Liverpool team of specialist Paralegals.

  • Supporting the team on intellectual property and advertising matters
We are looking to speak with paralegals with a strong academic background (at least a 2:1 at degree level and good standard at ‘A’ Level).  You will have excellent attention to detail and the ability to work as part of a wider team, using your initiative to deliver to deadlines.  With a good commercial acumen and sound judgment skills you will also ideally have relevant paralegal experience within IP/Media and Data Protection law.

Taylor Wessing is a progressive and innovative law firm truly allowing you to develop your legal career at the forefront of commercial law.  With an excellent market leading salary and outstanding benefits package this is an exceptional opportunity for a paralegal to join this leading international law firm in Liverpool.
