We are working with a leading British IP firm which is seeking to expand its life sciences/pharma team by appointing an additional Partner or Of Counsel.
The firm has an excellent profile within life sciences/pharma and is known for its opposition and litigation work, as well as high value prosecution and strategic due diligence advice. The existing team deals with many of the top-ranking pharma and biotech companies.
This appointment is a key part of the firm’s strategy for its continued development, and is responsive to a combination of growing client portfolios, which require additional senior level expertise. A client following is desirable, although this need not be substantial.
The successful applicant will be influential in helping to define client acquisition strategy and will play an active role in business development. In addition, the appointee will play a vital role in mentoring trainees and attorneys in their early career, encouraging cross-departmental collaborations, and working closely with the management team in ensuring the procedures in place reflect the current needs and interests of the firm and its staff.
Well-resourced and with a forward thinking approach to areas such as marketing, HR and management, the firm prides itself on its non-hierarchical, modern working environment. This has contributed to significant recent growth, including six new Partner appointments in the last 18 months and the acquisition of a synergistic IP valuation practice. Candidates seeking part-time and/ or flexible working conditions are also encouraged to apply.
