NLO, a leading IP-firm based in the Netherlands and Belgium, is growing and looking for a recently/almost qualified European Patent Attorney.
As a patent attorney, you play an important role in bringing innovation to the market. Thanks to the combination of your technical expertise and your legal skills, you enable your clients in building their IP position – be that from scratch or through ongoing innovation. This is achieved by providing strategic patent support, which is proactive, commercially attuned and responsive to the demands of the client. One key aspect to the role is the need to become involved in post-grant matters, especially oppositions before the EPO; NLO is highly active in this area of IP.
Our Chemistry Section is providing its attorneys with a highly revered direct client base including a number of well-known multinationals. With big corporates, you would assume that our attorneys receive instruction at arms-length. This certainly is not the case. You will be in the privileged position to sit down with the inventors, heads of research, in-house attorneys, and commercial leaders. We care deeply about fostering these relationships, and we prefer to augment this through seconding our attorneys to the client's site to get under the skin in understanding what impact IP has in the wider context of the client's commercial direction.
You will join a team of experienced patent attorneys who have come from differing backgrounds: industry or previous IP firms, but who share the same vision of what IP should mean to a company. You will be a strong personality who can impart knowledge and experience across the team when required but who can also show consistent high work output. Your career trajectory will be to eventual Associate Partner and you will be given the 'tools' to help you get there.

What do we offer?
