Greaves Brewster LLP is a modern, vibrant and agile firm of Patent & Trade Mark Attorneys, committed to providing an outstanding service to clients and a happy and productive working environment for staff. We’re proud to have a distinct approach, mindset, and location. It means we’re able to do things a little differently.

Our main hub is in Cheddar, surrounded by beautiful countryside, and we also have facilities in Bristol. Thanks to our technology, we’ve adapted well to home working, with staff based around the country, and have continued to grow our client base. We operate a “work from anywhere, rooted in Cheddar” working model providing both freedom and regular face-to-face contact.

We are currently looking to fill the following vacancies:

Life Sciences Patent Attorney

To support our growing opposition and prosecution workload in the life science sector, we’re now looking to add a further patent attorney to the team.

Our clients include major multinationals, universities, and start-ups. We handle high profile work in fields including CRISPR, antisense RNA, cell-based therapeutics (including CAR-T), next generation sequencing technologies, rapid diagnostic assays (especially for COVID-19), and protein-based therapeutics (such as antibodies). We’re happy to consider applicants with any degree from the life sciences or biotechnology sectors, provided they are comfortable working with a variety of technologies, such as those above, and are also willing to learn about new technologies. Applications are encouraged from part-qualified through to fully qualified candidates, as cultural fit and willingness to learn are just as important to us as exam passes.

Candidates should be particularly strong in drafting and prosecution, ideally for a wide range of subject-matter. Opposition, appeal, and freedom to operate experience would be advantageous but not essential.

Although you will be joining the team to provide support for our existing work, for all of our attorneys we also provide freedom and support to develop your own practice and ideas.

Trade Mark Attorney

Our trade mark practice continues to go from strength to strength and so we are looking for a trade mark attorney to join our team.

There is a wide scope of work available, including assessing and advising on availability of marks and of the risk of infringement, filing, prosecution and strategic portfolio management, and oppositions. Work relating to designs, including freedom to operate and invalidity advice, is also available for those interested.

Our clients include major multinationals, SMEs and start-ups, as well as other attorney firms.  We handle high profile work in a variety of fields, such as pharmaceuticals and medical devices, high end fashion, automotive technologies and fin-tech.

We are looking for help with our existing work, but we are also happy to support you in developing your own practice and ideas.
