London (UK)


London (UK) picture

London is the quintessential global city and this is reflected nowhere better than in its position as an IP hub. Many innovating businesses are based or headquartered in the city and many companies from elsewhere recognise London for its long-established role as a centre of IP excellence. Not only does it have one of the highest concentrations of patent and trade mark professionals in Europe, it is also home to the Patents Court where leading IP trials are heard.

With Marks & Clerk first opening its doors over 125 years ago, our London office has significant experience in helping clients ensure they protect and maximise the value of their ideas.  Located in London’s legal district, our patent attorneys have expertise across all technical disciplines from electronics to life sciences and from chemistry to mechanical engineering. Our trade mark attorneys have extensive multi-national experience in brand selection and clearance, registration, portfolio management and enforcement.  Clients are able to feel confident that their ideas and innovation will be both understood and protected.

Marks & Clerk London has a thriving domestic and international list of valued clients including multi-national corporations and SMEs that are either based in the capital, or come to London for IP expertise. They cover all sectors including biotechnology, cleantech, telecommunications, FMCG, pharmaceuticals and financial services. We have a long history of successfully managing our clients’ diverse and complex portfolios of IP rights throughout the world.  

The London office also has strong links to many of the universities and science parks located in London and around the South East of England. This enables our professionals to be at the source of local innovation.
