Corporate Patent Attorney

Corporate Patent Attorney
Our intellectual property team continues to grow! We are therefore looking for a new colleague, with a strong interest in IP, to be part in building a new legacy in how IP is utilized at Höganäs.

About the position 

Höganäs is enjoying strong growth in new markets and with this evolution towards sustainable and renewable industries, the IP function needs to take a more pro-active stance in providing business-relevant IP advice. You will play a key role in achieving this and in building a legacy for the organization, in how IP can be used as a commercial tool.

  • You will be located at the headquarters in Höganäs, Sweden, reporting to the Head of IP.
  • You will be developing relationships with the internal stakeholders including the inventors, R&D managers, senior commercial managers, product development, and legal
  • You will engage with suppliers, third-party partners, and external patent
  • You will maintain and develop an appropriate network inside Höganäs to identify and exploit new developments in IP and related

Your profile

Your academic qualification will ideally be within chemical engineering or a related degree. Your academic experience will have provided you with a broad base of scientific knowledge on which you have built your patent skills.

As a qualified European Patent Attorney, you will come to the position with a background of working in-house or private practice - if the latter, then you would need to demonstrate experience of managing direct clients. Your experience of IP will be equally broad and will have touched most aspects of the patent life cycle. This will help better position you as the partner, concerning not only external stakeholder expectations but also internal customers.

In summary, Höganäs is looking to you to raise the awareness of IP across the organization and to help build a strategically relevant patent portfolio that provides value to the organization, as it progresses towards new sustainable technologies.
