We are looking to recruit a Formalities Clerk to join our Brands, Design & Copyright (BDC) practice group to support the Trade Mark Formalities team. This role will require a bright and enthusiastic individual who is able to support the busy team with the full cycle of trademark administration as required.

Candidates should have:

  • Prior experience in Trade Mark formalities

This is an exciting opportunity to help the BDC practice in a unique firm with a prestigious platform of skills and clients; a firm that is performing well with a clear vision of where it is headed and the type of firm it wishes to be: a firm that is committed to delivering excellent client service and being financially successful (but not obsessed with profit targets), whilst also providing an enjoyable and civilised working environment for all.
