Forresters has recruited six trainees across its London, Birmingham and Munich offices, as part of the firm’s commitment to developing talent and expertise for the future.
Joining the firm are Elliot Farrell, Timothy Bone, Jacob Tyszka, Benjamin Page, Niama Knapp and Katarina Stefkova.
In the Birmingham office, Jacob Tyszka and Benjamin Page have joined the technology and engineering team. Jacob graduated from Imperial College London back in 2015, having read materials science & engineering. Prior to joining Forresters, Jacob spent five years working at British Steel, and he says that Forresters’ “Clear Direction” ethos particularly resonates with him. “In my time in industry, I found that distilling complex information into key ideas and straightforward solutions greatly helped the odds of a successful project, something that I will carry over to my work with clients and colleagues at Forresters. I’m looking forward to becoming a fully qualified patent attorney and to learning about a wider variety of new technologies.”
Benjamin joins Forresters as a trainee patent attorney straight after completing a Master of Physics (with Honours) degree at the University of Warwick. He said: “A career in intellectual property, and specifically as a patent attorney, appealed to me because it allows me to apply my scientific understanding to a huge range of different technologies, factoring in both legal and commercial considerations. I was impressed by the firm’s commitment to trainee development through a combination of in-house training, external courses, and real-world case work. While there is still some way to go before qualification, I am excited and motivated to begin my career as a patent attorney at one of Europe’s leading patent law firms.”
Forresters would like to wish each and every one of the new trainees a very warm welcome, and the best of luck as they embark on their professional careers with the firm.
