A message from us

During the lockdown we’ve continued to provide the high levels of service our clients have come to expect. Let’s hear from some of our people from across our offices about how they’re getting on...


Connected from afar

At Potter Clarkson, our attorneys, solicitors, teams and offices are united by a strong set of shared values. Now more than ever, these values help us connect with each other and our clients as we all embrace a new way of working.


Our purpose

At Potter Clarkson, we have one clearly defined purpose - creating value from innovation.


Best practice: Utility model protection

Businesses operating in Asian markets often overlook a key form of intellectual property protection – utility models. Here, we explain how to secure maximum value from these advantageous rights that are currently under-utilised by non-Asian organisations.
