We are looking for a Senior Life Sciences Patent Attorney, UK and EP (4+PQE), to join our strategic patents practice. This role can be based in either our Cambridge or London offices, with the expectation that you will spend time in both.  The successful candidate will have the enviable opportunity to help shape, develop and lead a team that is at the heart of the firm’s innovation and technology practice.

You will have a life sciences background with significant experience of advising biotechnology and/or pharma clients in relation to patents and IP more generally at a strategic level. We are looking for somebody with drive, ambition and a passion for innovation. Whether your career to date has been in private practice or industry, you will need to be able advise clients directly in relation to patents, trade secrets and other intellectual property rights. While patent drafting and prosecution ability is a prerequisite for the role, much of our work involves supporting clients in using their intellectual property to support their commercial aims.

A key part of the role will be developing the patents practice through carefully selected business development activities and client relationship management.
