Job Reference No: VAC-19676
A UK company have a litigation matter involving the infringement of the use of a chemical formula overseas. The matter has not progressed further than initial correspondence between the two parties. The value of any claim is estimated to be worth c 100-500k although this is a very rough estimate.
The company are looking for someone to deal with the case as their in house lawyer and provide ad hoc advice when needed. Based in Greater London, but the majority of the work can of course be done remotely.
It is likely this will be ongoing for some time to come, although from speaking to the company I doubt it will involve a lot more than say 10 hours a week, possibly considerably less and quite flexible to fit around existing commitments. From speaking to the company it sounds to be more of a standard litigation matter than specialist IP work. .
