Hear From Our Team

A career in patents offered me a unique combination of science and law – I like the intellectual challenge. I work with interesting clients and keep in touch with new developments in technology. Murgitroyd is different to other companies. The benefits are excellent and there’s a strong focus on work-life balance.
Terry Devlin, European Patent Attorney
A patent attorney career is stimulating and rewarding, encompassing my interests in technology, design, law and languages. I chose Murgitroyd as I wanted to work in a large, global firm that directly represents multinational clients. The company is very forward thinking, everyone’s friendly and there’s great scope for professional development.
I started at Murgitroyd during the lockdown! It was a really positive experience thanks to everybody's support. At Murgitroyd I found great team spirit, interesting cases and great clients.
Gabrielle Radault, European Patent Attorney
Having spent my university life studying physics and other engineering disciplines, a career related to law seemed unfathomable. However, my career as a trainee has turned out to be both challenging and satisfying. Murgitroyd offers excellent support to their trainees in terms of both training and general work-life balance - especially during the new working from home lifestyle.
Joseph Spencer, Patent Scientist
It was during my penultimate year of University that I decided to pursue a career in IP. I wanted to work for a well-established company which provided opportunities and scope for professional development whilst maintaining a community-like feel. I have found this and more at Murgitroyd. As a recent graduate, any anticipation I had about working for a large, multi-national law firm was quickly quelled and I have been really well supported in my role as a Trainee. A career in patents is certainly not a walk in the park, but the intellectual challenge, varied workload and interesting clients mean that no day is ever dull.
Rosalie Hide, Patent Scientist
I wanted to work for Murgitroyd as I had a keen interest in intellectual property during my time at university and considered it a great opportunity to utilise my law degree outside of the traditional 'solicitor' career path. Despite the fact that there are offices all over the world, Murgitroyd has a real sense of community and togetherness, which is invaluable as a trainee.
Holly Cameron, Trainee Trade Mark Attorney
Murgitroyd provide first class training and support to trainees. I would recommend Murgitroyd to anyone aspiring to become a Patent Attorney. The firm offers a friendly and welcoming environment where team work is encouraged. I am certain this will allow me to realise my full potential following my qualification as a UK and European Patent Attorney under the firm’s stewardship.
Aaron Lucas, Patent Attorney
Murgitroyd is a fantastic top-tier IP firm to work for, especially as a part-qualified attorney. The training and support that I've been given have been second to none. Working under several attorneys with different backgrounds, technical knowledge and styles has given me a well-rounded learning experience. I really appreciate the collegiate atmosphere that comes from having a body of other trainee attorneys to study with. Learning in group tutorials means we can pool our knowledge and experiences so that everyone benefits.
Jamie Ingram, Patent Scientist
