About Potter Clarkson LLP



We’re Potter Clarkson LLP, an award-winning, top-tier firm of European patent and trade mark attorneys and IP lawyers, and one of the largest full service intellectual property practices in Europe.

Advising clients around the globe on intellectual property rights across a variety of industry sectors, Potter Clarkson is well-known for handling some of the most complex and challenging patent and trade mark cases, and is particularly well-regarded for its successful prosecution, opposition and appeal work. Our proven excellence has made it the European firm of choice for several global giants, household names, universities and SMEs, as well as smaller companies and individuals all of whom wish to benefit commercially from their investment into intellectual property. We are here to help with our wide-ranging technical expertise, experience and business knowledge.

Founded in 1889 we have more than 185 staff and offices in the UK and continental Europe.

Every business we work with has a different set of challenges and objectives, so we don’t subscribe to a ‘one-size-fits-all’ mentality. Instead of a standard package, we offer bespoke, innovative IP strategies based on in-depth research and understanding of your commercial environment.

Our aim is to make every client relationship long-term and mutually beneficial, and our flexible, respectful approach to collaboration keeps clients coming back to us year after year, with our famously efficient staff staying just as long.
