European Patent Attorney - Life Sciences Team

Based in Dublin / Permanent

Job Summary

The role complements the expansion and progression of our Life Sciences Team to one of the most competent teams in Europe in all proceedings before the European Patent Office, with particular opportunity to directly manage higher level opposition and appeal proceedings. As part of our commitment to promoting a diverse and inclusive workspace, we provide everyone with clear and definitive opportunities to promote and progress your career. Regardless of your working arrangements, you will have occasion to work autonomously and function as part of a group, with direct access to clients and case work with a healthy combination of directly prosecuted and communicated matters – providing you with a varied and extensive caseload.


The technical competence of our Life Sciences Team ranges from pharmaceuticals and biotechnology to medical devices and healthcare – and we represent a range of inventors from SMEs, academic institutions, and international corporations – offering a varied and intensive work experience. We provide a flexible framework for all professional levels and we nurture a friendly atmosphere to contribute to a supportive and connected working environment. As an inclusive workplace, we are invested in empowering, valuing, and celebrating the diversity of our highly-motivated European Patent Attorneys.


Join us from where you are, if you are a fully-qualified European Patent Attorney (or part-qualified/trained EQE candidate) with a PhD or equivalent in (micro)biological, biomedical, biomolecular, (bio)chemical, or natural science (or a related technical discipline).


We are looking for you to provide practical strategic advice through an analytical and organisational perspective, and an active approach to business development. A highly motivated and self-starting attitude to working as an individual must also be combined with the ability to interact and develop strong working relationships with colleagues. We are dedicated to creating an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work, and so you can be you.
