“We are delighted that Clare has joined our practice. She brings with her a wealth of trade mark experience. Clare’s arrival means that we are able to offer an even more comprehensive service to clients, both in the UK, Europe and internationally, through a range of additional trade mark protection and portfolio management capabilities. In particular, with Clare joining our IP team here in Europe to complement our market leading teams in North America, Asia, Africa, Middle East and Australia, we are able to help our global key clients manage their brands and trade marks on a truly worldwide basis.”

Clare Jackman commented:
“I am thrilled to have joined Norton Rose Fulbright. International brand protection is my particular field of interest and setting up a trade mark practice to meet both the needs of the London office’s clients, as well as those of the firm’s global offices, could not be more exciting from a personal perspective”.
Clare was previously at national UK firm Bond Dickinson and also spent several years in the in-house trade mark team at the Wellcome Foundation Ltd, where she was responsible for all aspects of brand management, including creation, registering, licensing and enforcement. She also had particular responsibility for the Company’s portfolio of trade marks in South East Asia where enforcement, anti-counterfeiting and dealing with the grey market played a major part in the role.
