MLex seeks an intellectual property correspondent in London

May 8, 2024

Posted by Chris Roush

Global regulatory risk newswire MLex is looking for a UK IP Correspondent for its London bureau. This is an opportunity for a keen and driven reporter to dive deep into regulatory stories about intellectual property.

The beat involves coverage of intellectual property regulation in the UK. MLex seeks to get ahead of the procedural story through deep-dive analyses of legislation to anticipate where regulatory problems may lie. It’s a high-pressure beat in which there’s an expectation you’ll break market-moving news while offering the forward-looking analysis that helps inform decision-makers.

MLex is a real-time newswire and the successful candidate will be expected to turn around urgent copy quickly. It is critical that the successful candidate can successful spot a story that will appeal to MLex’s broad-but-demanding readership. We also publish in-depth reporting and commentary, and the UK IP Correspondent will be expected to identify risks posed by legislation ahead of our competitors and use this expertise to write in-depth, big impact investigations and commentary pieces.

The IP Correspondent will lead coverage of intellectual property in the UK, while working closely with colleagues in other bureaux and the broader intellectual property team.

The successful candidate must be able to write clearly and concisely in impeccable English. Fluency in any other additional European language would be a distinct advantage.

The successful candidate will be expected to work in our central London office at least two days a week under our post-Covid hybrid working policy; the other three days may be worked from home (accurate as of May 2024, subject to revision).

What we are looking for:

At least two years of journalism experience

Drive to break exclusive news and write poignant analysis

Writing with speed and flair in both newswire and commentary formats

Knowledge of UK regulatory environment

Interest in intellectual property

Broad network of sources across UK agencies, industry and law firms

Social skills to work with a diverse, international team

Fluent in English

Skills in other European languages a distinct advantage

Willingness to travel
