Commercial/IP Solicitor - Leeds

New opportunity with a Legal 500 rated law firm which is investing heavily in the expansion of its commercial services, and consequently is now looking for a commercial/ IP lawyer at the 2-4 PQE level to join its Leeds office. Whilst the firms headcount and national coverage is impressive, you'll find an entrepreneurial spirit and ambition here which should appeal to candidates from the Top 20 brands who are perhaps feeling they don't get the individual exposure or recognition that they crave.

Working directly with partners, with a real passion for IP, you will be advising a broad range of contentious and non-contentious IP matters including high court proceedings, general disputes, proceedings in trade mark registries, exploitation of IP drafting appropriate documentation and advising in relation to brand protection including filing trade mark applications. Contentious and non-contentious experience is applicable and any experience with technology companies would be helpful.

Suitable candidates will be coming from an IP background and will have a genuine enthusiasm to focus on soft IP and hard IP and some commercial work. It is a small team and so you'll need to possess a good level of confidence and be prepared to get involved with marketing efforts.
Florit Brooke advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
