Metis Partners, a multi-disciplinary IP firm with a proven track record in the assessment, exploitation, monetisation, valuation and sale of intellectual property assets, is launching a major recruitment drive.
The Glasgow-based IP specialist is in the midst of a rapid expansion, having recently opened an office in Farringdon, London and with a new office in Aberdeen opening this summer, in addition to an expansion in its presence in Berkeley, California. The growth matches the expansion of a burgeoning industry of which Metis Partners are at the forefront.
The company is now seeking six new full-time analysts – three in Advisory, two in Corporate Recovery and one in Brokerage to join the team. It is also seeking a penultimate year marketing intern to participate in its industry-leading internship programme, which offers fulltime hours over the summer with further opportunities to work part-time over the rest of the year.
Stephen Robertson, Director of Metis Partners, said: “This is a very exciting time for Metis Partners as we continue to make an international impact in a sector which is growing in economic importance.
“We are constantly looking for bright individuals with new skills as we continue to grow our business. The skills, experience and diversity of our team are crucial to the quality of the services and advice we offer.”
The recent expansion has been underlined by new high profile clients in both Corporate Recovery and Due Diligence. Adding to Metis Partners’ prestigious portfolio of IP assets sales, and the Corporate Recovery team’s successes are the recent sales of Polaroid Blipfoto, Internacionale, WeeWorld, Ortak and Barnsby.
The Metis Partners Advisory team has also supported an impressive range of transactions for clients such as Clydesdale Bank Growth Finance team, Boost&Co, Energy Ventures, Clifton Asset Management, Front Row Energy Partners and Bain Capital.
Metis Partners specialises in identifying and exploiting IP assets ranging from formal IP rights, such as patents, trademarks and design rights, to informal rights such as trade secrets, employee knowledge, organisational knowledge, R&D and databases.
The positions are varied and open to both recent graduates and experienced professionals. Full job descriptions for the multiple roles on offer are available on the Metis Partners website, www.metispartners.com/intellectual-property-about-us/working-for-metis-partners/.
