Brexit

The UK left the European Union on 31st January 2020 and entered a transition period set to last until 31st December 2020. 

While this brings about changes for the UK’s relationship with Europe, your relationship with Potter Clarkson will not change in any way. It will not disrupt the services we provide to you – it is business as usual.  

As a pan-European intellectual property law firm, with offices in multiple EU-member states, our ability to support clients in all aspects of IP is completely unaffected by any Brexit-related changes.  

With Potter Clarkson, you can be assured that we will continue to provide the same high-quality advice and service that you expect from us, including representation before the EUIPO.   

Quality is at the heart of everything we do at Potter Clarkson and nowhere is this more important than in the calibre of our team. Our focus for 2020 is to continue to grow our first-class team and expand our services to provide the most comprehensive and commercially focussed IP advice in the marketplace. 

To assist you further, our team has compiled a number of FAQ’s which we hope will provide answers to some of your initial questions.
