IP Paralegal with Training Contract

Pure Search are instructed by a leading TMT practice who are looking for an experienced IP Paralegal with a clear path for progression to either a fully-qualified Trade Mark Attorney or Equivalent Means qualification as a Solicitor.

The Company:

Our client is a leading name in the Technology, Media and Telecommunications sector, consistently achieving Tier 1 rankings through Legal 500 and Chambers. We have worked very closely with the IP team to build out their team over the past few years, hiring several associates. They are now at the stage where they are looking for an entrepreneurial IP Paralegal who is looking for a role with genuine career progression.

The Role:

The role will expose you to:

  • Preparing and filing trade mark applications;
  • Reviewing and explaining a range of correspondence relating to relevant deadlines, as well as managing deadlines for a range of media, technology start-ups and influencer clients;
  • Filing oppositions and assisting to obtain advice from overseas agents;
  • Recording transactions at UK and EUIPO;
  • Creating first draft specifications for trade mark and design applications and obtaining formal details required to file trade mark applications in the UK, EU and overseas;
  • Assisting Solicitors/Trade Mark Attorneys with preparation of evidence required in trade mark application and opposition / invalidation / revocation cases.

About You:

You will have at least two years experience in a similar IP Paralegal position, with experience of the majority of the responsibilities listed above.

You will be at a point where you are gaining good experience but are looking for a role that will offer both interesting exposure to TMT clients on an international scale and also provide a clear and defined path for career progression. This could either be from progression from part to fully qualified Trade Mark Attorney or a role that allows you to qualify as a Solicitor through Equivalent Means, with the full backing of the firm.

You will be someone that has an interest in growing your network, as the role is likely to expose you to high levels of client contact from an early stage.
