Potter Clarkson Legal launches in Denmark

Potter Clarkson Legal, a dedicated intellectual property litigation practice has launched in Denmark, with the aim of providing top tier representation for Danish clients operating throughout Europe.

The formation of this new litigation practice marks a key milestone for the Potter Clarkson Group’s evolution in the Nordic region, creating a dedicated litigation team within Denmark, and is testament to the rapid growth and success of its litigation offering in the UK.

The firm’s UK team of experienced litigators has advised on some of the largest and most complex IP disputes the courts have seen in recent years. As a strategic partner of the Potter Clarkson Group, Potter Clarkson Legal will be able to support clients in cross-border disputes throughout Europe. 

Headed up by experienced IP litigator Lars Karnøe, and supported by consultant Jakob Andersen and associate Louise Aaby Jørgensen, Potter Clarkson Legal has ambitious plans to expand its specialist dispute resolution offering throughout the Nordic region.

Commenting, Lars Karnøe said:

We are responding to a need within the Danish market and the wider Nordic region for high quality, pan-European expertise to support our most innovative businesses when they face an IP dispute.

"We know from our work with clients across Europe that a specialist approach to IP litigation can make a real difference to the outcome of an intellectual property dispute and we’re looking forward to working with more Danish firms to help them actively tackle potential obstacles to future growth.”

Steve Smith, managing partner of the Potter Clarkson group, added:

We have been consistently growing our presence in the Nordic region over recent years and this latest move further underlines our credentials as a truly pan-European, full-service offering. It will ensure innovative businesses in Denmark that are operational cross-border have access to trusted, specialist and commercially-focussed intellectual property services that help them to grow and achieve their ambitions.”
