Highly experienced Chartered Trade Mark Attorney Lindsey Wrenn has become the third partner in Clarion’s intellectual property (IP) practice which, with a nine-strong team of specialist IP lawyers, is one of the largest in any full service commercial law firm in the North.

 

Having spent more than 25 years as a trade mark specialist, Lindsey has held senior roles within a number of national and international law firms as well as having worked for a boutique trade mark practice and in-house.

 

A member of the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys, Lindsey advises on all aspects of trade mark and registered design protection from brand clearance, filing applications in the UK, Europe and internationally, filing and defending oppositions, invalidity and revocation actions, through to drafting and negotiating licences and assignments.

 

She also has wide experience of the enforcement and preservation of trade mark and design rights, including the conduct of hearings before the UK and EU Intellectual Property Offices.

 

Esther Kirwan, who heads up Clarion’s IP practice, said: “With over 25 years’ experience, Lindsey is an incredibly knowledgeable trade mark attorney with a huge following in Yorkshire, the UK and beyond. With her specialisms in retail, pharma, media and education, she is a great fit for Clarion, further strengthening an already impressive trade mark practice spearheaded by Sarah Molloy, and increasing our capacity.”

 

Fellow Clarion IP partner Sue Streatfield adds: “Having known Lindsey for many years, she is one of the leading players in this specialist area and will add to our trade mark and registered design expertise, as well as helping us to reinforce  our international capabilities.

 

“I also think Lindsey will thrive in Clarion’s collaborative and nurturing culture – she is very much a team player who enjoys sharing her knowledge and helping to develop junior lawyers.”

 

Lindsey comments: “Clarion was an obvious choice for me, not only because of its first-rate reputation, but also its forward-thinking approach to client service, combined with a collegiate and supportive way of working. The team ethos has come across loud and clear in all my dealings with the firm and this was a real draw for me. I was particularly impressed by Clarion’s recent accreditation as one of the ‘Best Small Companies to Work For’ by The Sunday Times.

 

“To be joining the dynamic IP team at Clarion to strengthen its trade mark offering is a very exciting prospect. The team has already built up a solid trade mark and design practice with an enviable client base. With my extensive experience and contacts, I am relishing the opportunity of helping to develop and move the practice forward, alongside the team.”

 

Lindsey has built up a wide network of foreign attorney contacts around the world and has been involved in the International Trademark Association (INTA), having previously served on one of its committees. She has also lectured at the University of Manchester and internationally, and she was a contributor to the CITMA/CIPA Community Trade Mark Handbook.

 

With a diverse client base from multinationals to SMEs across a range of industries, Clarion’s nine  strong IP team advises on all matters relating to patents, designs, trade marks, copyright, confidential information and defamation, including litigation and dispute resolution, as well as advising on IP strategy, registered IP protection, IP agreements and exploitation.
