We enlarge our team and open up opportunities for a Junior European Patent Attorney (Liège and Brussels Offices) with a Master’s degree of Applied Sciences and Engineering in Mechanics, Electronics, Electricity or Computer Science or a PhD in Chemical Science or Physics. Qualified with professional experience in industry or an intellectual property law firm; perfect command of French and at least good command of English and German or Dutch is expected.
We require you to possess an analytical mind, to be flexible in contact with others, to have a natural aptitude for written and oral communication including setting up comprehensive reports. You enjoy working independently. Knowledge of other languages is an asset. Capability of planning, organising and coping with deadlines as well as an eye for detail are necessary requirements.
As a Junior Patent Attorney we anticipate you are competent to carry out in-depth analysis of our client’s needs, to formulate advice on the patentability of inventions, to supervise and/or prepare patent application drafts and to defend them before the relevant Patent Offices (including oral proceedings). Besides handling proceedings for our clients, you are expected to manage the client’s patent portfolio and to get involved in elaborating on his IP Strategy and FTO analysis.
You are supposed to team up with your colleagues to ensure the best of services for the client and to be able to see and capitalize on new business opportunities. Being active in interest groups, lecturing or other business channels is an asset.
We will then be delighted to offer you a permanent full time contract with an attractive remuneration package including extra-legal advantages and -upon full Qualification- the possibility to become involved in partnership on a medium term.
