Potter Clarkson LLP is a full-service IP firm that’s ‘going places’, quite literally, with the opening during 2018 of new staffed offices in London, Stockholm and Copenhagen (adding to our already significant presence in Nottingham). Following this exciting expansion, we now provide an even better place to train and work as a patent or trade mark attorney, or IP solicitor, including the opportunities for secondments between offices.

With over 76 patent and trade mark professionals and 9 IP solicitors and around 115 support staff working together across our integrated offices, supported by state-of-the-art IT infrastructure, video conferencing and meeting room facilities, we have considerable legal, scientific and commercial strength.

Potter Clarkson is consistently ranked in the top tier of major legal guides, such as Legal 500 and MIP. Unlike most UK patent and trade mark firms, we also hold three independent ISO accreditations which evidence our high level of service provision, information security and environmental awareness. We pride ourselves on providing expert IP advice delivered by an approachable and engaged team, helping our clients develop IP strategies to support their commercial objectives. Our firm acts for many leading household names including AstraZeneca, Nokia, Unilever and Eli Lilly, as well as SMEs and universities.

The formula for our success is simple. We recruit the very best people and invest heavily in their training and personal development to produce outstanding IP professionals. The organisation and infrastructure of the firm and its dedicated support staff equip our experts with all they need to apply their skills efficiently and deliver exceptional service to clients. We also recognise the increasing importance of a healthy work-life balance and wellbeing, which our dedicated HR team help promote.

To excel as a patent or trade mark attorney requires hard work, dedication and many talents: strong scientific understanding, excellent language skills and commercial acumen. However, our comprehensive and highly regarded training programme will make your training experience varied, challenging and rewarding, ensuring remarkable success in professional examinations.

If you are ready for the challenge, we’d love to hear from you.
