Patent Attorneys/Patent Attorney Trainees – Life Science / Chemistry - Lund

We are now recruiting talented, ambitious patent attorneys or patent attorney trainees equipped with a good sense for business and commercialization of R&D to join our office in Lund.

Being a patent attorney requires a high intellectual capacity and excellent analytical skills. We appreciate minds equipped with a curiosity for science and technology even outside your core area of expertise.

You have a PhD or equivalent experimental research experience from the life science field, for example in medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, metabolic engineering, food science, biomedicine, biotech engineering, or molecular biology.

Typical duties as a patent attorney include drafting and prosecution of patent applications, analysis of patentability, assessment of infringement and validity of patents, strategic IP counselling as well as assistance with licensing agreements, IP due diligence, litigation, etc.

You are a skilled communicator and aim to provide excellent and accurate service to your clients. You speak and write English fluently. Fluency in Swedish is a requirement. You master the spectra from detail to the big picture. Protecting and enforcing intellectual property rights can be a lengthy process that requires both quick action and great patience. We expect you to be ready to defend our clients’ rights with the same passion as if it was your own.

In the absence of prior experience with patents, you will be offered a comprehensive training program during the initial 3-5 years leading up to a European Patent Attorney (EPA) degree. A part of the training is conducted within the framework of your daily work, but you will also need to allocate a part of your private time to patent training during the coming years.
