I wanted to become a patent attorney
Having decided that I wanted to become a patent attorney, I joined Wynne-Jones in September 2014 seeking experience in Intellectual Property. I started out working as a member of our administrative department gaining a huge amount of knowledge an experience in a relatively short time.
As with all new starters, from the day I joined Wynne-Jones, I was provided with a number of tutorials introducing me to Intellectual Property and focusing on patents and trade marks. All of the senior attorneys were not only approachable but all encouraged me to ask questions if there was anything that I didn’t understand. This is something that has continued to the present day, with all of our qualified attorneys at the firm being willing to take time out of their day to explain a piece of work or a matter of patent law, no matter how busy they are.
Supporting my future steps
In May 2015, I was offered the position of trainee patent attorney, and with delight, I accepted. I have since sat my first set of professional qualifying exams and passed them all. I was provided with encouragement and support the whole way through the preparation process, with the firm not only sending me on several revision courses but also providing me with in-house tutorials for several of the papers.
I am confident in the knowledge that the firm will support my future steps to qualification.
