As I neared the end of my degree and began searching for trainee patent attorney positions nationwide, I was instantly drawn to HLK by the overwhelmingly positive reviews online, both from clients and past applicants. The application was straightforward, and I can distinctly remember the HR team being extremely responsive and welcoming throughout the whole process, which lasted no more than 3 weeks. Having zero experience and barely any knowledge of the IP world, I was relieved to hear about HLK’s renowned Academy programme, which all trainees go through. This level of support and guidance towards achieving full qualification is rare and is what separates HLK from many other firms. It was clear to me that HLK invested a lot of time and effort into their trainees and had already developed a tried and tested method of seeing through the arduous qualification exams.
