Company Profile

Qualified and Part Qualified Patent Attorneys, Engineering


Job Description:

Two fantastic opportunities for ambitious attorneys are available in Bristol. The Advanced Engineering Group at Withers & Rogers LLP is one of the strongest teams of specialist engineering patent attorneys in Europe.  Exciting new client wins and increased work from existing clients are driving the requirement to grow the team in Bristol.

Qualified Patent Attorney - Associate/Senior Associate

We need someone who is ready to take on and manage a significant case load.  With a portfolio of work to inherit and grow, this position is ideal for someone looking for progression and the option to build and manage a team.  Consisting predominantly of direct European client work, including patent drafting, prosecution and opposition work along with top level strategic client advice, there will be minimal agency prosecution work.  Whilst joining the team responsible for a major client working on wind turbines, we also offer variety to keep you interested, in aerospace, automotive and medical devices, as well as registered designs for household names. Our clients range from multi-national companies to start ups.  Experience of aerodynamics would be great, however structural engineering, high performance/composite materials and/or control systems experience would also be really interesting to us.

Part-Qualified Patent Attorney - Trainee/Junior Associate

We have a unique opportunity for a part-qualified attorney to join our expanding team working on a full service portfolio of patent work including prosecution, drafting, filing, opposition and advisory work.  This will suit an ambitious attorney who would join at a time of significant growth.  Working predominantly with two major multi-national companies across the spectrum of work, there is the possibility of an in-house secondment, as well as face to face client interaction (on a weekly basis)!

The Advanced Engineering Group at Withers & Rogers LLP serves major multinational businesses in automotive, aerospace, packaging and energy sectors with direct client relationships in the UK, Europe and overseas. Internationally, we advise for example first-tier automotive suppliers and oil and gas service companies in the US, and an industrial conglomerate in Japan.  In the UK, we advise for example, a leading manufacturer of construction equipment, a global automotive engineering consultancy and one of the country’s biggest manufacturers of fresh food packaging.  We also advise and act for exciting start-up companies, SMEs and a number of UK universities.

We want you to succeed and will provide you with the encouragement and support to do so, whether it is internal or external training or funding for business development. We offer a progressive and open career path with defined milestones to help you progress your career here at Withers and Rogers.

We believe that our people deserve a healthy work life balance - where realistic targets can be reached and you still have time for your family, friends, sports and hobbies, whatever they may be. With our flexible working week and holiday trading options you have some control over how this is achieved.

If you are a Part Qualified or Qualified CPA/EPA with a good degree in an Engineering discipline, we would be very interested in hearing from you. In return we can offer a class leading benefits package including competitive salary, performance bonus, pension scheme, and up to 28 days holiday per year, with the option of holiday trading.
