Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
Reddie & Grose LLP is an internationally renowned firm of International, European and United Kingdom Patent, Trade Mark and Design attorneys with offices in London and Cambridge.
We pride ourselves on listening to our clients and offering expert and pragmatic advice and services that are tailored to our clients’ needs. Avoiding a ‘one size fits all’ approach has allowed us to build up many valued long lasting client relationships since our firm was founded in 1907.
We have a strong Trade Marks team who have a wide range of experience of registering and enforcing trade mark rights around the world. We have a high proportion of partners handling trade marks compared with many UK firms and we offer clients a wide range of trade mark services. From obtaining trade mark rights, managing portfolios, offering protection strategies to helping with disputes and oppositions, we are on hand to assist clients with their trade mark needs.
Reddie & Grose has an excellent reputation for training; and the majority of the partners trained with the firm. Every new trainee will work closely with a partner of the firm who will be responsible for their day-to-day training and development. As a complement to this traditional one-to-one training, we have developed a bespoke training programme for our new trainees, which is intended to bring them up to speed with some of the core concepts of intellectual property law, and also to provide a degree of communal practical tuition.
The training programme begins with an intensive training induction introducing the basics of trade mark, patent law and other intellectual property laws, such as design law. The training induction also includes sessions dealing with important practical aspects of the job such as “how to communicate with clients”, “effective marketing”, and “the role of a trainee”.
The training programme then continues with weekly/fortnightly sessions devoted to practical training. The trainees work through different tasks of increasing complexity each week, and their work is then assessed by a partner or qualified attorney. Both communal and individual feedback is provided as part of a group discussion. These practical training sessions ensure that all of our new trainees are exposed to the same core practical examples, providing them with the tools to develop their skills together.
In total, twelve weeks of a new trainee’s first year at Reddie & Grose are spent working through our bespoke training programme. After this, new trainees will be supported through a 13-week course leading to the Certificate in Intellectual Property Law (currently provided by Queen Mary, University of London) and a Professional Certificate in Trade Mark Practice.
We want our trainees to have access to the best support they can get, so they are also encouraged to take advantage of courses and lectures provided by the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys.
