About the role
This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of the ambitious growth taking place at Dyson. As a Patent Attorney, you will be working closely with the IP team, Research, Design and Development (RDD) teams, and outside counsel in the support of RDD project & technology teams to manage IP risk and deliver strategic value and advice to the Enterprise. You will be involved in supporting new technologies and early stage projects, which span a diverse range of categories including health and beauty, energy storage, digital motors and robotics.
The position will see you advising the business on a wide range of IP issues, reviewing invention disclosure forms, engaging with outside counsel to support patent drafting activities, and prosecuting patent applications globally to deliver strategically relevant patents in a cost-effective manner.
