Who are we?
We are an IP powerhouse comprising over 200 people in 7 locations, providing a full suite of IP services advising across the globe and in all technical and scientific disciplines. Our people are at the heart of everything we do. Our business ethos is all about great client service and we can only deliver that by being a great employer.
What can you expect during the internship?
As an Intellectual Property Intern, you will have the opportunity to work closely with our team of IP attorneys and professionals. This internship program is designed to provide you with both hands on experience and exposure to various aspects of IP Law via class-room based learning, similar to the training provided to our trainee attorneys when enrolled at our HLK Academy.
What exactly do patent attorneys do?
We secure intellectual property rights for prominent companies as well as highly creative start-up businesses. Our clients include many well-known household and industrial names and are at the forefront of technological development in the electronics, engineering, chemical and biotechnology sectors.
At the core of the job is the preparation of patent applications on behalf of clients. This involves understanding an invention, distilling it down to its key features and then writing a very clear and broad-based description of it, such that a Patent Examiner will be persuaded to grant a patent. Around that core skill, a Patent Attorney will be called upon to advise clients on all aspects of patent procedures, on international patent protection and on effective patent strategies. Some of the things we love about our jobs are:
• The opportunity to apply your science or engineering degree to a wide cross-section of clients and technologies.
• Continuing intellectual challenge - you never stop learning.
• Excellent career opportunities and financial rewards.
• The international aspects of work providing ample opportunity to travel.
