We are looking for an additional patent attorney to join our team, preferably one who is qualified (perhaps recently-qualified) in a Commonwealth jurisdiction such as Singapore, Australia, New Zealand or the UK.
Patent attorneys operate at the cross-over between law and technology, dealing day-to-day with patent law and practice for inventions in often cutting-edge technology. As such, the successful candidate will have:
a good university degree in a relevant discipline, such as electrical engineering, physics or computer science;
a qualification as a patent attorney in a Commonwealth jurisdiction (although consideration will be given to exceptional candidates who are nearing qualification as a patent attorney in Singapore);
excellent English-language skills;
an appreciation for the need for effective communication;
good analytical skills and the ability to grasp complex technological and legal concepts;
an attention to fine detail;
an outgoing and friendly personality.
In return you can expect first-class career development prospects. For instance, real opportunities for early advancement are available to the right person. We are a lean organisation without the layers of hierarchy which have to be navigated through in larger firms. The successful candidate can also expect an interesting and varied workload in patent law and practice, including significant original patent drafting, prosecution and opinion work. This workload will extend across several engineering and technology disciplines, ranging from electronics, telecommunications, computer science & software, through to mechanical engineering and devices. Clients include Singaporean and foreign universities; large international aerospace, hi-tech and heavy industry organisations; financial institutions; and SMEs and startups.

About the company
McLaughlin IP Pte. Ltd. offers an extensive range of highly-specialised services in the field of Intellectual Property Law.
We are a firm of Singapore patent attorneys (Singapore patent agents), trademark attorneys and registered design attorneys. We help our clients obtain intellectual property rights in Singapore and throughout the world. We are a small, but growing and dynamic, firm providing top-firm expertise and experience. We strive always to provide a first-class level of service with a friendly and approachable manner.
We are located in Singapore, in the historical Chinatown area. First reports of a Chinese community in the area reach back to 1330. The area became a division of colonial Singapore for Chinese immigrants under a plan devised almost 200 years ago. Although more cosmopolitan now, the area still retains a rich cultural heritage from those early Chinese immigrants, and we are very proud to form part of such a vibrant community.
While we offer trademark and industrial design registration services, we have particular expertise in the field of patent law and practice. We have technically- and legally-qualified Singapore patent attorneys, and are registered to practice before Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS). Click to find out more about our team.
