Potter Clarkson LLP is one of the leading pan-European firms, with seven offices across the UK, Denmark, Sweden and Germany. Following a period of rapid international expansion over the last two years, we now provide an even better place to train as a patent or trade mark attorney, or IP solicitor.

We offer clients a full IP service to support them in achieving their commercial objectives. We pride ourselves in the exceptional level of client care offered by our approachable and engaged team. The breadth of our client base means we can offer opportunities to get involved in a diverse range of work.

We have 82 patent and trade mark professionals and 10 IP solicitors, who are expertly assisted by over 100 support staff and state of the art IT infrastructure. We have adapted to remote working seamlessly during the coronavirus outbreak, and have continued to provide unparalleled service to our clients as well as retaining the social culture of our friendly firm.

We pride ourselves in recruiting outstanding graduates from around the world. Following on from a thorough induction, our trainees are supported through a comprehensive and highly regarded training programme. Our pan-European presence provides inspiring opportunities for secondments and knowledge sharing across our integrated offices. The exceptional opportunities offered to our trainees mean that we achieve remarkable success in professional examinations.

In 2019 we were awarded the Investor in People Silver Award as recognition of the importance we place on the professional development of our people. The firm is consistently ranked in the top tier of major legal guides, such as Legal 500 and MIP. We also hold three independent ISO accreditations which evidence our high level of environmental awareness, service provision and information security.

We are committed to promoting a healthy work-life balance, and supporting the wellbeing of all our people. We offer a range of health and wellbeing benefits and resources including healthcare, flexible working options, sports and social groups, virtual yoga and meditation sessions, a virtual wellbeing hub, an Inclusivity and Wellbeing Working Group, mental health first aiders, and a busy social calendar (which Jack will fill you in on!). If you want to join our team and start an exciting IP career with Potter Clarkson, we’d love to hear from you.
