Potter Clarkson expands IP practice
Potter Clarkson promotes one to partner
UK law firm Potter Clarkson LLP has made changes to its team with the appointment of two senior managers.
The Nottingham-based firm, which specialises in patents and trademarks, has announced that Colin Baker will be its new managing partner.
Baker (below left), who focuses on the patenting of chemical inventions, has been a partner at the firm since 1999.
He has experience of proceedings before the European Patent Office Opposition Division and Boards of Appeal and has handled more than 100 cases.
Alongside Baker, Andrew Argyle has joined the firm as its new practice director.
Argyle (below right) focuses on commercial and civil litigation and previously worked as a partner at Shakespeares for 15 years.
"This change has been planned and rehearsed for several months," said Baker.
"The change will be seamless and is part of the evolution of our top tier firm which achieves its 125-year milestone this year."
Potter Clarkson LLP advises its clients on IP rights in fields including biotechnology, chemistry, engineering and computing.
