In-house Patent Counsel

We are looking for a new in-house Patent Counsel to join us in the Patent team at 3Shape in Copenhagen.

3Shape is a fast growing and innovative company within scanning technologies and 3D CAD/CAM software, in particularly within the dental industry. We are currently approximately a 1000 people globally where 300 are placed in our headquarters at Holmens Kanal, including a major part of R&D. We constantly push to develop scanners that set new standards, and combined with our user friendly and innovative design software solutions we provide the dentist and dental labs with a package that delivers high end dental products with a solid return on investment.

Your role

You will be evaluating ideas from a classic patentability perspective but will also need to understand how such inventions impacts and supports the business. This requires that you not only need to communicate with our inventors, but also need to provide patent support on a business level to key decision makers.

Besides idea evaluation, patent drafting and prosecution you will also be involved in other areas such as clearances, licensing and litigation and you will have time to focus on some of these areas too depending on your interest.

Your qualifications

We are looking for a candidate that has several years of relevant experience in patent drafting and prosecution and is capable of working within technical areas such as electronics and computer software. It will particularly be an advantage if you have experience within technologies that relate to scanners, CAD software and/or medical devices.

We offer

You will be joining a team of three other in-house Patent Counsels and one searcher, that are structured in the Legal department. We work closely together and use each other extensively for quality checking and feedback in general. We aim to keep us constantly up to date on patent law and a person who has ambitions to pass the EQE or who has passed it and wants to keep his or her qualifications up to date will have ample opportunity to do so.

We are looking for a quick engagement and therefore look for applicants who are already located in commuting distance to Copenhagen.

Please send us your application before Monday the 14th of August. Should you have any questions please contact Mikkel Ninn-Grønne on 33 30 65 41.
