Job Details

We are delighted to be working in partnership with a European agent to recruit a Senior IP Counsel for a global pharmaceutical leader active in the therapeutic areas of oncology, virology and inflammatory diseases. Based in Dublin, this career defining expansion role is borne out of the success and growth of this pioneering company at the forefront of invention.

You will seamlessly manage all IP-related cross-continental matters for Latin America, Middle East and Russia. The unique nature of managing the full gamut of IP issues as well as influencing IP policy at a local level, is truly rare and exciting. Besides supporting the affiliates, you will manage international litigation and counsel on IP enforcement.

As part of a diverse and inclusive team of highly experienced and commercially astute lawyers, you will enjoy direct access to business decision makers, with the distinct satisfaction of providing commercial solutions to complex legal issues.

To thrive here, you will be a commercially astute qualified lawyer with ideally 5+ years PQE in a law firm or an in-house pharmaceutical company. However, those with less, who can bring demonstrable experience will certainly be considered. If you are legally qualified from one of the affiliate countries, this would prove advantageous. Essentially you will be proficient across the full gamut of IP matters, skilled in conducting and managing international IP litigation. Outstanding technical skills aside, your strong interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence and cultural awareness are key in this extraordinary international role!
