Working at Mewburn Ellis - Engineering Patent Attorney

Why choose Mewburn Ellis?

Mewburn Ellis is one of Europe’s leading IP firms. Ranked top tier, we are a firm synonymous with quality and technical excellence. We are also seen as a firm that hasn’t shouted about our successes, in fact you may not have even heard of us. That’s because our focus to date has been on producing great work for our clients and home-growing brilliant attorneys. We have been on quite a journey over the last couple of years, growing rapidly, moving into Europe, increasing the number of graduate recruits we train in-house and now opening our doors more widely to recruit impressive new partners, associates and members of our business services team. Importantly, we have also taken the time to stop and look at how the market and our clients’ needs are changing and how we need to adapt and evolve to stay ahead.

Considering IP is at the cutting edge of innovation, IP firms can often be slow-moving and internally focussed. Mewburn Ellis isn’t that way, we are and always have been a forwardlooking IP firm. We recently celebrated our 150th anniversary, and when you look back over that time you see that we have a history of embracing change, thinking ahead and anticipating challenges and opportunities both for our clients and for our own business.

We’ve recently taken a long hard look at our business and what we want to achieve. As a result we have a new three year strategy. The future for us is about ongoing improvements and driving the continued growth and development of the firm. We now have a vision, mission and clear set of values that reflect what’s diff erent and special about us. Our vision is so important to us that we’ve made it our strapline as part of our recent re-brand launched in July.

The Forward-Looking IP Firm

Currently the firm has more than 40 partners and over 60 qualified attorneys spread across five offices in Europe, as well as an enthusiastic and highly motivated business services team. In the last 12 months alone our number of people has increased by 10% and we are now more than 200 strong. We’ve hired new partners and associates as well as new roles in our business services team including Chief Operating Officer, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer and Head of IP Services. So, if you’re ambitious, committed, forward-looking and enjoy a challenge, join us on our journey to achieve our mission to be recognised as the premium, full-service European IP firm with motivated people, offering an exceptional standard of client
service – a firm we are all proud to be part of.

What’s changed at Mewburn Ellis

• We’ve opened an office in Munich, our first in mainland Europe. In just 18 months we have enjoyed a period of successful growth, welcoming key hires and moving to larger premises to accommodate expansion. This has further cemented our position as one of Europe’s leading specialist IP firms.
• We’ve opened our doors more widely to lateral hires, recognising the value they bring to the firm and our clients. In the past Mewburn Ellis was seen as a closed shop, primarily because we focussed so heavily on graduate recruitment and developing our own attorneys – something that we’ve been very successful at. Right now our strategy is one of growth so we’re keen to hire even more great attorneys to join us. We recognise that times have changed and so have our aspirations. Our three year strategy is all about growth and to achieve this we need more attorneys. In reality we have more work than we can manage and this volume is only going to increase.
• We’re transforming our IP Services Team with a whole new approach. This will further enhance our service offering and allow our fee earners to concentrate on effective client management and business development.
• We’re looking at how we deliver services to our clients and introducing a new ‘Ways Of Working’ (WOW) programme. This consists of a new client services coordinator role, streamlining our working practices and investing in new and upgraded IT systems. This is all to ensure we achieve the highest possible standards and quality of service for our clients.
• We’ve expanded our Marketing and BD team who work alongside our attorneys to support new business initiatives.
• We’re raising our profile and starting to be more bold in the way we talk about our success. We are now actively commentating in the media on industry and key IP issues. In the last quarter alone we’ve had over 50 pieces of press coverage and are now regularly asked to contribute to The Financial Times, BBC, The Independent, City AM, to name but a few.
