Education for qualified jobs
We offer training for the following careers
- Patent law clerks (m/f/d)
- Paralegals (m/f/d)
Excellent knowledge of English is important for both forms of training. These skills are required on a daily basis when working in an international environment. The majority of correspondence with clients and colleagues is conducted in English.
The training of our patent law clerks focuses on the formal processing of patents from the application stage through to the grant of a patent in Germany, Europe or further afield.
Our paralegals are trained in cooperation with our attorneys-at-law, who particularly deal with patent litigation, but also handle trademark and design cases. In the course of their training, trainees particularly learn to prepare and submit complaints, to issue briefs and to reliably record time limits and dates for hearings.
All trainees also support our lawyers with general office work, with managing files (in both digital and paper format) and in corresponding with clients and colleagues from all over the world.
Our trainees are generally assigned to the department of the patent attorney or attorney-at-law training them. However, they also go through the firm’s other departments and gain an insight into the department responsible for centrally recording time limits, the department responsible for managing annuities for IP rights and the general administration departments (Accounts, Marketing, Purchasing/Facility Management). As a result, you will acquire a broad range of legal, technical and linguistic here.
Besides attending a course at a vocational school, our additional internal lesson each week will prep you well for your interim and final examinations.
