Intellectual property specialist Forresters has grown its Liverpool office with the appointment of Emily Brunton as trainee patent attorney.
Emily, 22, will work alongside head of office Ross Walker as she trains to qualify as both a UK and EU patent attorney.
She graduated from Lancaster University with an integrated masters in physics and will now undergo at least five years of on-the-job learning and law exams.
“I have always had a passion for finding out how things work and the science behind technologies and new inventions,” said Emily.
“This role combines science and law, supporting inventors and innovators to get their products to the market.”
Forresters is also celebrating a number of recent achievements, including being ranked as a ‘Top Five’ British filer for EU trade marks and a recommendation for Liverpool-based senior associate and trade mark attorney Kate Cruse in the prestigious Legal 500.
Ross Walker, partner and head of Liverpool office, said: “At Forresters we understand the importance of recruiting talented young lawyers and trainees to support our long-term ambitions.
“Emily is a great fit for us, with a strong STEM background and attributes such as ambition, curiosity and diligence.
“As an office we work with clients worldwide, but are making a specific effort to grow our Merseyside client base and to understand the needs of entrepreneurs and innovators within the region.”
Forresters moved its Liverpool operations to the Port of Liverpool building in 2013.
