We are recruiting for IP Valuation Analysts to join our US team!

Who we are:

Metis Partners is an intellectual property (“IP”) firm, acknowledged as being the UK market leader in IP Valuation and IP Sale. Established in 2003, we have grown to become a young dynamic team of specialists working remotely and from offices in Glasgow and San Diego.

Metis Partners is an established Intellectual Property Valuation firm based in Glasgow, UK. Recognized as an industry leader due to its breadth of experience and enviable reputation in the market.

What we do:

We identify, value and sell IP for a range of clients, big and small, private and public, across numerous sectors. Our approach is focused on analysing a business, its key resources, its competitive advantage and how and where IP and intangible assets contribute. We get a unique, inside view of what make companies tick – both the successful companies and those who are failing and why. We also help support other professionals, advising on and facilitating business turnarounds often using the value of IP assets to attract rescue funding.

We operate in three IP disciplines: IP Valuation, IP Advisory and Corporate Turnaround and Restructuring. The Business Analyst role supports all three areas and we currently have graduate vacancies. The role offered will depend on both your skillset and relevant qualifications, and extensive IP training is provided in-house.
