Marketing Executive – Full-time (£COMPETITIVE)

Who we are

Metis Partners is an Intellectual Property (“IP”) Valuation firm with a proven track record in the assessment, valuation and sale of IP assets. Established in 2003, we have grown to become a dynamic team of specialists working from offices in Glasgow and San Diego and are acknowledged as the UK market leader in our field. We continue to invest in a committed team, based in Glasgow, and our expansion strategy is creating opportunities for the team to both widen its skillset and gain more international experience working in Europe and the US.

What we do

We identify, value and sell IP for a range of clients, big and small, private and PLC, across numerous sectors. Our approach is focused on analysing a business, its key resources, its competitive advantage and how IP contributes to the business. We get a unique, inside view of what makes companies tick – both the successful ones and those who are failing. We also provide support other professionals, advising on and facilitating business turnarounds leveraging the value of IP assets to attract rescue funding.

We operate across three IP disciplines: IP Valuation, IP Advisory and Corporate Recovery and Restructuring. A Senior Manager heads up each of the three teams. Metis Partners is acknowledged as the UK market leader in IP Valuation and IP Sale and is expanding its niche international business in the US and Europe.
