I’m Clare (@stanmoreip) and I’ve been running my business, Stanmore IP, since January 2015. Prior to that I worked at a large multi-national law firm as well as at specialist IP firms and in-house at Unilever. I live and work in the beautiful North Bedfordshire countryside, although I do also cross the border into Buckinghamshire and work in my husband’s office space in Olney. I have two young children, both girls, who keep me very busy with the essentials in life of soft play, sticker books, Disney films, cake and ice cream.
I am a UK and European (for now!) trade mark attorney. I advise lots of businesses of varying shapes and sizes on how to protect their brands, get the most out of them through licensing or franchising, as well as providing advice on domain name protection and enforcement, design protection and copyright issues. I work with businesses in loads of different sectors, including art, charities, fashion, food & drink, financial services, graphic designers, education providers, hotels and retail.
I love #BedsHour for the networking and the shared information. I’m notoriously late as I’m usually at a fitness class until 9pm (that’s the official excuse – in fact usually I’m catching up on work!).
If you have any queries you think I might be able to help with, please get in touch. I spend far too much time online and can be found on Twitter, Facebook,Instagram and LinkedIn so please feel free to connect in any/all of those ways!
PS my usual working days are Tuesday and Wednesday so please bear with me if I take a little while to respond outside of those days.
