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.
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.
