"Portal Medical Ltd has used the Intellectual Property service offering from WJIP for over 9 years. We have found the service given outstanding, with the advice received having been essential in protecting our Intellectual Property position. WJIP guided us effortlessly through the patent application and grant process during both National and International Filing stages. Their advice and strategy for responding to Patent Examiners’ objections was, in our opinion, instrumental in our business being granted and obtaining a patent portfolio. We would thoroughly recommend the services of WJIP, particularly to SME’s when external expertise and advice in this area is essential." - Darren Bromley-Davenport (MBA), Director, Portal Medical Ltd

What is the Wynne-Jones IP Training Academy?

The Wynne-Jones IP Training Academy is a dynamic programme developed to train graduates in IP law and business management. Rather than training in the traditional route of shadowing a qualified Attorney, you will follow an internally developed scheme that aims to get the best from you to achieve your ambitions.

What does the Wynne-Jones IP Training Academy involve?

Training involves a detailed four to five year training plan delivered through modules. The modules will cover the following areas:

  • Technical patents

We have a range of individuals with expertise in Wynne-Jones IP to support you throughout your training with us. Our collaborative approach means that as a trainee, you are thoroughly supported within a team, and individually to ensure you are best prepared for practical working and exam preparation. Alongside your training in legal knowledge, we will also give you substantial business training and support to ensure that you become a well rounded IP attorney. As part of the Academy, you will be exposed to a commercial and business environment much earlier than your peers in other IP firms, meaning you will develop your IP practice management skills more quickly.

"“I have felt supported from my very first day, the senior attorneys are all very supportive and give me and the other trainees equal opportunities to attend client meetings, networking events and CIPA events. Within six months of starting as a trainee, I attended an international IP meeting to develop the firm’s relationships in Europe. Through the Training Academy, I get an excellent coverage of knowledge across all aspects of IP through the in-house tutorials and revision courses. The work I do as a trainee is incredibly varied. I get the chance to work on patent applications relating to a diverse range of inventions, from very simplistic devices to complex industrial processes. I’m enjoying being exposed to and learning about cutting edge technologies. The Training Academy provides a continuous progression from starting as a new trainee to becoming a qualified attorney and opportunities for partnership. I believe the Training Academy is teaching me not only the legal knowledge and experience I need but also teaches me the business and relationship skills necessary to become an excellent qualified attorney in the future”.
" - Chris Hotchen, Trainee Patent Attorney, 2015-2016 Training Academy intake
