THE ROLE

A fantastic opportunity for a lawyer to join as an IP PSL, as an integral part of the London-based IP and Technology Group.

The IP PSL will have individual responsibility for building and disseminating IP knowledge and supporting the IP practice.

Although the principal focus of the role will relate to IP, the successful candidate will be expected to take the lead on broader IP and Technology practice support initiatives.

The IP PSL can expect to have substantial direct contact with Partners and other fee-earners from across the firm.

You should have genuine enthusiasm for the use of technology and innovation in the support of fee-earners and clients.

All PSLs in the firm have a dotted line report to the Director of Knowledge & Innovation, and work closely with the central Knowledge & Innovation department as well as with the Business Development and Learning & Development departments.

ABOUT YOU

An experienced practising lawyer or Professional Support Lawyer (PSL), your experience will have been gained in a leading practice and include exposure to as broad as possible a range of IP work.

This may include disputes, IP related agreements such as trade mark and patent licensing, distribution and franchise agreements, M&A/JVs and other transactional work as well as desktop IP portfolio searching (trade marks, patents, domain names).

Prior experience as a PSL is not essential and you will be looking to work 4 days week.

Lipson Lloyd Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
