We are looking for a graduate with an electronics or physics background, although someone with a mechanical background with competence in IT or electronics would also be suitable. A law degree would also be an advantage but is not required. You will need to complete examinations to qualify as a patent attorney.
The role includes:
• Conducting technical research to evaluate the novelty of technology and assess the risk of patent infringement;
• Learning to draft patents and handle the patent examination process;
• Assisting with contentious cases before the Patent Office and courts; and
• General coordination of client portfolios.
The ideal candidate will also have good IT skills to assist with support of the firm’s IT systems.
We work in a very collegial environment and offer a high degree of job flexibility. This position could either be Auckland or Wellington based. You will need to learn quickly and enjoy working autonomously and directly with clients. We offer remuneration packages that reward performance.
