Potter Clarkson recognised as a 'full-service IP outlet with impressive reach' in WTR 1000

Potter Clarkson is delighted to feature in the 2021 edition of WTR 1000: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals - the definitive ‘go-to’ resource for those seeking world-class legal trade mark expertise.

On top of this great achievement, Sanjay Kapur, Emmy Hunt, Jesper Sellin and Sarah Talland have been named individually.

The UK ranking states:

"The last few years have been transformational for Potter Clarkson. An infusion of enhanced licensing and litigation capabilities and international investment has amped up the resources of its offices in the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden and Germany; it now cuts a dash as a truly full-service IP outfit with impressive reach. Smart recruitment is another key thread in this narrative: 2019 signing Emmy Hunt settled in quickly and became partner in 2020 - a promotion that was well deserved, given her agility as a portfolio manager and brand strategist. She was at the forefront of the group’s successful representation of INEOS Automotive in high-profile UKIPO oppositions against Jaguar Land Rover’s applications to register various 3D shapes of its Defender off-road vehicle. Meanwhile, there is plenty of other attention-grabbing work going on across the team. Sanjay Kapur has been securing vital registrations for companies in the Reckitt Benckiser Group, overcoming registratibility objections in the process. The long-time partner and board member is praised as “user-friendly, calm, commercial and practical”, and shines in his leadership role thanks to his commitment to cultivating next-generation talent. Sarah Talland has prevailed in consequential oppositions for companies in the sportswear and alcoholic beverages areas, among others. A “warm, genuine person with impeccable integrity”, Talland has an “excellent understanding of her clients and their business”."

The Sweden ranking states:

"At Potter Clarkson, protean IP all-rounder Jesper Sellin knows patents, trademarks, designs and copyrights like the back of his hand and counsels holistically across all four."
