The Position

To support HGF’s expansion, we are now looking to recruit for a newly/recently qualified IP Solicitor to be based in our London, Birmingham, Manchester or Leeds offices.

Most importantly, you will be willing to immerse yourself in a full spectrum IP environment and to get involved in all aspects of IP legal matters.
