What we expect

What we expect

We expect you to possess exceptional Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate degree qualifications from a recognized university. We treasure emotional intelligence as much as we do academic achievements.


The law is a demanding profession and it is not for everyone. We look for candidates who have top notch intellect, healthy ambition, maturity, motivation and plenty of passion to pursue an international career. You need to see the big picture with an eye for the granular detail, and have a fearless appetite for plunging deep into areas you have never come across before. As you can see from our milestones, we handle cutting edge technologies.


The candidate must strongly align or fit with our organization and work culture. We expect the candidate to be highly adaptable, disciplined, organized with great multitasking skills, able to perform well under pressure and possess an indomitable work ethic. You must be able to fit a lot into your life and have abundant energy, pluck, enthusiasm and determination.

Writing & Analytical Ability

You must enjoy writing and the challenges involved in convincing a skeptical audience that a particular conclusion is valid in view of available or limited facts. The position is ideal for those who prefer to critically interpret data and results and designing experiments over conducting them themselves.

You must delight in applying your excellent analytical skills. You must have the capacity to absorb and apply knowledge and techniques required for the successful performance in the position. You need to review, digest and explain complex issues in a simple manner and make sense of a complex set of facts.

Three years is the ideal length of time for candidates to become complete, well-rounded professionals, having properly inculcated, internalized, & excelled in the performance of their intellectual property services to our demanding clients.

We expect creative, dynamic, energetic & enthusiastic international talent. You must have the cosmopolitan ability to adapt to new circumstances and be driven by wanderlust rather than financial reward. You must possess the promise to become the best and be prepared to journey with us together in transforming your talent and promise into achievement.
