Part or fully-qualified patent attorney job – Electronics, Telecoms and IT.  London or Bath

Based in: Abel & Imray’s new London office, Holborn or in the South West, in our offices in central Bath

Salary: Competitive, based on qualifications and experience

Both our London and Bath offices are ready to welcome a new attorney. Whether you’re fully qualified or approaching finals, it’s an opportunity to work with an inspiring range of clients in innovative sectors as part of our Electronics/Telecoms/IT team.  We are happy to consider applications from those looking for part-time or full-time working.

These are rapidly evolving fields dealing in cutting-edge ideas. So if you’ve got electronics, telecoms or software knowledge, it will stand you in excellent stead. While you’ll be a new recruit, you’ll also quickly become involved in building our firm’s future – helping to shape our client portfolio and seek out new business opportunities.

What you’ll be doing

Although there’s no such thing as a ‘typical day’ as an Abel & Imray attorney, your position will involve:

  • Dealing directly with clients, daily – whether it’s a laboratory-based physicist or the CEO of a global engineering brand. That means you’ll swiftly get to grips with state-of-the-art research and development currently making waves in these fields of technology. You’ll speak your clients’ language – no matter how technical. And you’ll build enduring partnerships along the way. 

  • Drafting and prosecuting successful patent applications will make up a huge part of your role, drawing on both your legal expertise and technical knowledge.  

  • Working closely with a number of partners. We’re truly collaborative here at Abel & Imray and teamwork involves everyone from new starters to long-established partners.

Put simply, a diverse workload and a mandate to protect some of the world’s most pioneering ideas will keep you on your toes. Plus, we’ll put plenty of opportunities to help direct the future of our firm your way.

Where you’ll work – and what we offer

We’ll expect a lot from you, but will offer a lot in return. As well as day-to-day support, we’ll make sure your working environment is dynamic and inclusive – one where your career can really blossom.

In fact, you’ll be joining our steadily growing firm at an exciting time; we've just moved to brand new, purpose-built offices in Holborn. Whichever office you are based in, you’ll also get to spend time in our bases in London, Bath, and Cardiff, as our team works collaboratively across each office.

Alongside a competitive salary, you’ll have a generous holiday entitlement to play with. And you can also choose from a host of other lifestyle benefits, including private healthcare, a pension and season ticket loans.

More about us

From the ideas we protect, to the way we run our business, everything we do is about looking to the future. Right now, we’re proud to partner with many of the world’s ground-breakers. At the same time, you’ll be joining a firm with a prestigious history and reputation.

We’re also proud to be an inclusive, equal opportunities employer and members of IP Inclusive. That means treating everyone at Abel & Imray fairly, as well as respecting each employee’s personal goals and ambitions. However yours line up, we’ll champion them.
