Patent Attorney


Ready for a change in scenery?
Come and join us in Norway

Håmsø is situated in the city of Stavanger, an international innovation hub on the southwest coast of Norway. We may not be the centre of the world, but with stunning mountain views and location between two fjords, you’ll be able to impress your friends and family with how Scandinavian your new life sounds once you decide to come and join us.

Work Environment

Our offices are in a new and modern business park to the south of the city with communal facilities including a 24/7 gym. Most attorneys prefer to do the short commute into the office each day to meet colleagues and have a laugh over lunch in our lovely canteen. Of course, we understand that working from home can be beneficial from time to time, and so we can be flexible when needed.

What we’re looking for

Are you an enthusiastic individual who thrives when exposed to new challenges and is motivated to contribute in a variety of ways? If so, fantastic. Ideally, you’d have an electronics, IT, or engineering technical background, at least three years of experience in IP, and be newly-qualified or nearing qualification before a national office or the EPO. You’ll have responsibility working directly with our clients who range from local startups through to SMEs and large multinationals, and so strong interpersonal skills are also highly valued.

Our Approach

We also take a different approach to performance assessment than you might be used to. At Håmsø, we focus on our collective progress as a team instead of individual billing metrics. This makes for a more varied and interesting work life, as well as a more relaxed atmosphere. Through experience, we’ve found that taking such an approach allows us to consistently deliver top-quality services at competitive prices for our clients. We’re looking for highly motivated and diligent attorneys to strengthen our award-winning team and support us in our ambitions. Our firm blends fresh leadership with a rich and enduring history. In 2019, we transitioned from being family-owned (since 1950) to a partnership model, currently with seven equity partners and one associate partner. Our attorneys cover six nationalities, three of whom are from the UK.

So, what do you think?
If this sounds like a bit of you, we’d love to have a chat.
