Job Details

Are you looking for an opportunity to springboard your career and undertake high-quality work on behalf of a high profile, commercial client base? This opportunity to join an established, innovative boutique law firm will give you an unrivalled level of exposure, and you will find yourself working alongside renowned Partners recognised in both Chambers UK and Legal 500. This will provide you with a platform to develop & grow and put you well ahead of your level of PQE.

The Firm:

This dynamic, innovative boutique law firm has an unrivalled reputation in the North West, which has seen them rank highly in the Legal 500 across almost every practice area they operate in, including numerous top tier rankings.

Despite their size, the firm offers a service that is on par with the big players in the City, and you can expect to find work that is often international in nature. The team operates across every business sector, including life sciences, IT, chemical, digital media and sports. The client base is equally varied and ranges from start-ups and SMEs to household names and professional football teams. This makes for a diverse and interesting caseload.

The firm's vibrant, modern office was designed to allow for collaboration between individuals and across departments, creating a genuinely synergistic environment. Since the firm implemented the design, cross-referrals between departments increased by 25%.

This highly profitable practise has achieved year on year growth, despite coronavirus and their inspirational leadership team continue to drive the firm forward into new markets and sectors at a time when other firms are scaling back.

The Role:

The firm is now looking to strengthen its Legal 500 recognised IP team with a commercially astute and technically strong IP Associate, in their Manchester City Centre office.

You will join a high performing IP team as they continue to attract exciting, high-profile work. The team undertakes both contentious & non-contentious Intellectual Property matters including patents, copyright, designs and trademarks, in addition to malicious falsehood and defamation. The team has a particularly strong track record in multi-jurisdictional patent and trademark disputes. The variety and complexity of work and the size of deals that the team undertakes make for an interesting and versatile role.

Many of the lawyers in the team have industry-related experience, and due to this, they can truly understand the needs of their client base, which gives them an edge on their competitors. You will be surrounded by some of the most technically strong IP Lawyers in the country, with all three of the team's Partners being recognised as 'Leading Individuals'.

This is an exceptional opportunity to join a highly profitable, boutique law firm as an IP Associate. The firm has a proven track record of developing and nurturing legal talent, and you will work side by side with the team's Partners undertaking increasingly complex matters. This will act as a springboard for your career and a platform to build your reputation in this field.

There are excellent progression prospects on offer, with a highly competitive salary and attractive benefits package.


  • You will be an IP Associate with a minimum of 3 years PQE (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
  • Experience across both contentious & non-contentious Intellectual Property law
  • The ability to manage a caseload of high calibre work and clients
  • You will be commercially minded and have a flair for business development
