Keystone Law is one of the most respected law firms and its fast rise has reshaped the London legal market. It’s a multi award winning top 100 law firm that is continuing to make waves. In 2017 it listed on the London Market and it continues to go from strength to strength with investors and clients alike. In 2018 it was commended by The Lawyer in the Law Firm of the Year category at its prestigious annual awards ceremony.

Its lawyers are drawn from the partnerships of the top 50 firms and some high quality boutique firms, who bring their client base with them. Clients include Nationwide, Neal’s Yard, RBS, Cancer Research, Virgin Atlantic and Siemens.

To support its on-going growth, one of its IP and commercial consultants (partner level) is seeking to recruit a further paralegal with IP/commercial/technology experience to work directly with him in a team of three. Such team in turn works with wider firm teams across the disciplines as clients require from time to time.

The role would suit an applicant with a strong academic background with at least 12 months (and preferably more) experience in IP/ commercial/technology law at a top ranked law firm. Hands on experience of undertaking legal research and preparing reports, producing legal documents and liaising with clients is required. In addition, the candidate will also need to demonstrate a good attention to detail and a knowledge of IP/Technology law.
The successful applicant will primarily work closely with an IP and commercial partner level lawyer and his associate on servicing client requirements where clients range from fast growing start ups to household names.  He/she on occasion may be required to work alongside other paralegals, trainees and junior lawyers in supporting the firm’s lawyers with a very a wide range of work where the team is called in to advise upon the IP/IT aspects of transactions.

This is a great opportunity for a graduate looking to join what is probably London’s happiest law firm. If you feel you have the skills and experience we are looking for and would enjoy working for an expanding and forward-thinking law firm, then please get in touch today.  Please note that a year’s relevant paralegal experience at a very good firm is essential for this role.
