Anderson Law LLP - Training contract

  • Commencing: February 2018
  • Location: Oxfordshire

Anderson Law LLP, a niche intellectual property and commercial law practice, is offering a training contract to start in February 2018.

Anderson Law’s clients are made up primarily of high-tech companies (including bio-technology, medical research and IT companies) and universities (including their technology transfer units) within and outside of the United Kingdom.

Anderson Law are ranked in Chambers & Partners as a leading intellectual property law firm (both nationally and regionally) and are ranked in IAM Patent 1000 as one of the top firms in the UK for IP transactional work.

We also write practitioner-based books and materials for Oxford University Press, LexisNexis, Bloomsbury Professional Publishing and the Law Society. The topics covered to date have included intellectual property, technology law, and transactions in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, contract drafting and commercial law.

The person we are looking for will have a good academic record, probably have a science background, and preferably have had some experience in industry/business (but this is not essential).

The position will be based at our offices in Oxfordshire, although a certain amount of travel will be involved, mainly to our clients’ offices in London and the South East. Own transport desirable.

The salary will be competitive and greater than the Law Society’s recommendations for trainees.
