Senior European Trademark Attorney

The Opportunity

Potter Clarkson is a top tier European firm which has seen considerable growth in recent years, partly from building their teams across their offices in the UK but also through the successful expansion into Sweden and Denmark.

The firm appointed their Stockholm-based Attorney-at-Law Partner, Jesper Sellin, in January 2019 to grow and acquire clients within the national market. This has been a highly successful appointment and with Jesper now established in the Stockholm office, they are now looking to appoint a Senior Trade Mark Attorney to join him.

The Role

  • You will work on both EUIPO and Swedish trade mark cases. You will be expected to work independently in managing the needs of your clients but will be supported at all times from colleagues in parallel roles also working within Potter Clarkson.
  • You will connect with your clients and evolve with their needs, demonstrating an empathy that will lead to you being regarded as their true expert.
  • You will get access to the full gamut of IP matters across a variety of industry sectors, spanning Sweden, Europe and the US, will handle opposition cases, provide client advice and will also work on other IP matters including copyright, patents and industrial designs.
  • You will be central in further developing Potter Clarkson as a leader in the field and have a genuine desire to grow.

Professional Qualities

You will come to the role with at least six years of experience in the profession – ideally more. Because the team is at full capacity with client instructions, there is no time to train and develop someone, hence the importance that you come to the role being able to work with independence and take on a varied and interesting portfolio of clients and client cases.

Your earlier career could have been in either a practice or industry setting. Both experiences are valuable to the role. What is important is that you are an experienced European Trade Mark Attorney.

The added-value you bring to the role is someone with strong interpersonal skills who can demonstrate they have worked with different stakeholders within a client organisation and able to refine the advice according to the audience. You need to be comfortable working in a collaborative environment, sharing ideas and supporting colleagues.
