“My biggest surprise was how much personal interaction there can be with the R&D teams of even big corporate clients. It's especially rewarding to get to know inventors who are improving the devices, like mobile phones, which have become such a large part of our lives.” - Grace Wood, Trainee Patent Attorney

“The social events put on by the firm are really good fun and are a great opportunity to mix with people you may not see as much in your day-to-day activities. The events such as the summer boat trip, bowling and a monthly drinks trolley are held throughout the year and are a great opportunity to unwind and relax after a hard week's work.” - Luke Jones, Trainee Patent Attorney
