Learning and Development (ch)

Tell us your goals and we can help you achieve them provided they are aligned with our business objectives.

We provide learning and development opportunities for all our staff using both internal and external providers.

Becoming an attorney

When we employee a Trainee Patent or Trademark Attorney, we provide financial support for tuition fees, study leave and tutoring while they complete their Masters of Intellectual Property and qualify for registration as a Patent and/or Trademark Attorney.

Flexible working arrangements

We recognise that a life outside work, whether or not this involves family responsibilities, is important to the health and welfare of our workforce.

We have a flexible approach to work practices and have a number of flexible arrangements in place for parents, and sometimes for others who have requested flexibility for various reasons. Our flexible arrangements are available at all levels of the firm. We also have a number of staff members, at all levels of the firm, who work remotely from home.

We have a very high retention rate for our staff who are mothers following their maternity leave.

We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to the values of equal employment opportunity and anti-discrimination. One-quarter of our staff members are from foreign ethnic backgrounds.
