Careers

Driven by increased client demand, we are recruiting.

 

Patent Attorney

We are looking for an additional patent attorney to join our team, preferably one who is qualified (perhaps recently-qualified) in a Commonwealth jurisdiction such as Singapore, Australia, New Zealand or the UK.

 

Patent attorneys operate at the cross-over between law and technology, dealing day-to-day with patent law and practice for inventions in often cutting-edge technology. As such, the successful candidate will have:

  • a good university degree in a relevant discipline, such as electrical engineering, physics or computer science;
  • a qualification as a patent attorney in a Commonwealth jurisdiction (although consideration will be given to exceptional candidates who are nearing qualification as a patent attorney in Singapore);
  • excellent English-language skills;
  • an appreciation for the need for effective communication;
  • good analytical skills and the ability to grasp complex technological and legal concepts;
  • an attention to fine detail;
  • an outgoing and friendly personality.

In return you can expect first-class career development prospects. For instance, real opportunities for early advancement are available to the right person. We are a lean organisation without the layers of hierarchy which have to be navigated through in larger firms. The successful candidate can also expect an interesting and varied workload in patent law and practice, including significant original patent drafting, prosecution and opinion work.  This workload will extend across several engineering and technology disciplines, ranging from electronics, telecommunications, computer science & software, through to mechanical engineering and devices. Clients include Singaporean and foreign universities; large international aerospace, hi-tech and heavy industry organisations; financial institutions; and SMEs and startups.

 

Legal Secretary/Paralegal

We are also looking for a Legal Secretary/Paralegal to join us and work closely with an experienced/senior Paralegal. The successful candidate will have:

  • at least one year’s experience as a legal secretary/paralegal
  • a desire to make a serious contribution to a growing and dynamic team;
  • a good command of the English language, with proficiency in both spoken and written English; and
  • an outgoing and friendly personality.

Previous experience as a specialist patent secretary would be an advantage. Experience of trademarks and registered designs would be useful.

In return, you can expect an interesting and varied workload in a relaxed and friendly working environment and a competitive benefits package.
