Ryder Reid Legal is working closely with a boutique patent law firm to recruit a paralegal to join its Leeds office on a permanent basis.
The successful candidate will assist a number of fee earners with a range of paralegal, secretarial and administrative tasks. In addition, the paralegal will perform certain aspects of patent and/or trademark work without guidance, therefore applicants will need to have knowledge of the relevant patent, trademark and design application procedures in order to hit the ground running.
Duties will include: preparing correspondence and legal documentation, preparing documents ready for online filing of UK, EPO and PCT Forms, plus CTM applications via EUIPO.
To be considered, candidates will be degree educated and ideally have previous experience working as a Patent Paralegal in a similar law firm environment. Candidates must also possess strong organisational and communication skills and be able to work autonomously and well under pressure.
