News story: Standing Counsel for the Comptroller General of patents, designs and trade marks


The Attorney General is recruiting to fill two existing vacancies for Comptroller’s Counsel.

The appointments are open to both barristers with a tenancy and solicitors with a higher court advocacy qualification. Although most of the work will come from the Comptroller, advocates may be asked to advise other government departments on intellectual property matters. However, the appointments carry no guarantee of the amount of work that will be available.

The appointments will be for an initial period of three years. There is the possibility of an extension for up to a further three years at the discretion of the Attorney General.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on 30 April 2019.
