Wildbore & Gibbons became part of Potter Clarkson LLP on 1 September 2018. We are Chartered Trade Mark Attorneys and one of the longest established firms of trade mark specialists in the UK.

“Wildbore & Gibbons is a boutique firm that concentrates solely on the management and protection of trade mark portfolios.” (Legal 500)

“a knowledgeable and practical trade mark specialist” (Legal 500)

As one of the most experienced trade mark specialists operating in the UK, Wildbore & Gibbons’ roots go back more than 130 years.  Founded in 1887 in London by John Gibbons, trade mark agent, our practice was merged with that of Benjamin Wildbore in 1892. One of Wildbore & Gibbons’ clients, John Begg Limited, a whisky distillery, was among the first companies to register a trade mark under the UK Trade Mark Registration Act of 1875.

In the 1940s we pioneered trade mark monitoring by establishing the Trade Marks Directory Service (usually called TMDS). This enabled subscribers to be kept informed of the publication of potentially conflicting trade mark applications at home and abroad and to give them the opportunity of opposing them.

If you require trade mark advice or brand protection in London, the United Kingdom or indeed anywhere in the world, we can assure you of expert and professional advice.  Since becoming part of Potter Clarkson LLP, Wildbore & Gibbons now boasts a team of ten trade mark attorneys, five at partner level, and we can offer our clients access to Potter Clarkson’s patent attorneys and specialist IP solicitors.
