Marks & Clerk, the UK’s largest Patent and Trade Mark Attorney firm, has boosted its team in Cambridge with the promotion of two new Partners. Steven Gurney, a specialist in the pharmaceutical sector and Matthew Pinney who specialises in software and telecommunications, both join the Marks & Clerk partnership.
The firm, which alongside its office in Cambridge has bases across the UK as well as in the EU, North America and Asia, is one of Europe’s largest teams of intellectual property specialists.
Alongside promoting new Partners, the team in Cambridge has also been enhanced by the recruitment of new trainee patent attorney, George Christian.
Dr. Kirsteen Gordon, Managing Partner at Marks & Clerk Cambridge said: “Cambridge is regarded as one of the world’s great centres of knowledge, learning and research. Protecting the innovation that results from that research is key for the companies designing the products and services of tomorrow. The city continues to be a world leader in fields as diverse as software and pharmaceuticals.
“The continued growth of our team in Cambridge is symbolic of the city’s continued success. We look forward to continuing to help businesses in Cambridge and beyond unlock the value of their intellectual property and build world-beating enterprises.”
