If you want to work with innovative clients and creative brands, value independence but want the support of a team environment and are enthusiastic and curious about IP — we could be the firm for you.

I’ve been with UDL since 2005. I never thought I’d find a job that I could devote so much of my life to, but I quickly realised that the firm would make me feel valued and help me to grow professionally. I enjoy my job immensely and take pride in working for a firm I can believe in. The people here are warm, friendly and supportive and I’m happy to come in each day to work alongside them.

Olivia Charnock-Bradshaw, Paralegal
