Marks & Clerk

Marks & Clerk is an international group of intellectual property service providers, encompassing patent attorneys, trade mark attorneys, lawyers and consultants, with strengths across various industries including life sciences. 

Marks & Clerk

Marks & Clerk was founded in the city of Birmingham in 1887. Over the last century and a quarter, our European and UK Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys have developed particular strength in protecting innovation produced by the industries present across the Midlands, including automotive, life sciences, chemical, electrical, food and drink, manufacturing, and mechanical.

  • Our patent and trade mark attorney practice has more than 125 years’ experience of delivering intellectual property prosecution and strategy services. The size and extent of our international resources mean we are able to offer expertise across a diverse range of technologies and industry sectors throughout the world.
  • With 17 offices across four continents, we work in some of the world’s most important and fastest growing markets. We also regularly work with a trusted network of associate firms in other jurisdictions, allowing us to advise on and deliver global IP filing strategies.
  • Many of our attorneys are leaders in their fields. Our patent attorneys all have an extremely high level of technical ability across an unusually large range of technologies. Many have studied to PhD level and beyond. A significant proportion of our attorneys have direct experience of working in industry.

    Since its founding, the office has expanded to provide specialist intellectual property services to support businesses of all sizes, from blue-chip companies to SMEs to entrepreneurs. Our team has the skills and experience to support specific commercial needs of all types of commercial organisation.

    Our Birmingham office has outstanding links with the universities and other academic institutions in the region. Bridging the gap between academic and commercial, our patent attorneys advise inventors, guide spin-outs and assist tech transfer departments to maximise the value of their IP.

    We are proud to be an active member of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, and are always keen to support local businesses, both in the UK, and more broadly through our international network of Marks & Clerk offices.
