Find out about Potter Clarkson, one of the sponsors at Global Research & Innovation in Plastics Sustainability 2022.
Environmental sustainability is absolutely key to all our futures and innovation will play a pivotal role as we strive to make the improvements needed to achieve the ambitious targets being set by governments all over the world.
However, as the current levels of innovation increase, so too will the associated levels of competition and demand which is why intellectual property (IP) is business critical for every sustainable plastics business.
Not only will your IP protect your ideas and – by extension – your business, it also gives you a secure platform from which to scale up your operations either by licensing your intellectual property to third parties or forming formal collaborations with complementary entities.
We will be joining in with the Innovator/Exhibitor Showcase at 12:00 on Day 1. This session will showcase featured exhibitors and innovators from a broad range of plastics sustainability themes and introduce a raft of new ideas from the world of sustainable plastics.
Scaling up and investment are topics that we are looking forward to during the conference, as they are key to maximising the impact of the myriad of sustainable plastic innovations currently taking shape.
If Potter Clarkson is a new name to you, we are a fully integrated IP law firm offering patent, trade mark, design, commercial law and litigation services from our London, Nottingham, Stockholm and Copenhagen offices.
Our unique combination of patent and trade mark attorneys and litigators and IP solicitors means we can provide clients with instant access to all the IP and commercial law advice they need from a single source. This approach simplifies the process of creating the clear, carefully costed and joined up commercial strategies needed to consolidate market position and maximise the commercial value of your innovations.
However, we know that if we are to provide the very best advice, we need to understand every type of client.
We have extensive experience of working with companies at every stage of their life, from ambitious start-ups and fast-growing SMEs to international corporates. We have also worked hard to combine our technical expertise with our equally extensive industry experience to create integrated cross-disciplinary teams to serve the sectors we work with most.
Cleantech is one of these sectors and within the team, plastics, polymers and biomaterials are among our primary specialisms. We are currently helping both the producers of plastics and the investors financing their development to:
- Identify the most strategic ways to use their intellectual property rights
- Register the patents, designs and trade marks they need and better protect their trade secrets
- Make sure the rights they want don’t infringe any existing IP rights
- Defend their rights should they be opposed or infringed
- Draft the legal and licensing agreements they need to capture, protect, and exploit their rights
- Provide the wider commercial perspective they need to build their business
Your primary points of contact are Jason Teng and Alice Mortiboy and both would welcome you to contact them should you have any questions relating to protecting and commercialising your intellectual property.
