Swindell & Pearson has moved its offices in Stoke and the Black Country.

Swindell & Pearson has moved its offices in Stoke and the Black Country. The Stoke office has moved to the Genesis Centre. The firm has had a base in Stoke for over 70 years from where it has consistently provided specialist intellectual property (IP) expertise and advice, covering patents, trade marks, design protection and copyright to some of the region’s most well-known companies and iconic brands. The Black Country presence is more recent – only around 30 years. Its Stoke regional office is part of the firm’s nationwide office network and is headed by director Robert Sales, who explains: “We are active members of the North Staffordshire business community. Indeed, Swindell & Pearson is a founding member and help set up, the professional services organisation ‘finest’ over ten years ago. As specialist intellectual property advisers, our involvement in the Stoke area has seen us acting for many of the major companies in the pottery and other traditional industries. We are still actively involved in protecting IP rights in the pottery industry, whilst the firm also acts for a range of clients, in particular SMEs, operating in a variety of other industry sectors.” He continues, “The Genesis Centre is modern and well-located in Stoke and will provide us with a flexible, accessible base both for our team and our clients in Stoke, Staffordshire and across South Cheshire. There are many important factors to consider when finding suitable office space and the Genesis Centre ticked all the boxes – from enabling us to be at the heart of a vibrant community of other like-minded businesses, through to its accessibility and high quality meeting and conference facilities.” The Black Country office has moved to the Wolverhampton Science Park and is headed by director Michael Skinner. Michael says: “We actively seek to work with the business community of the Black Country, and Wolverhampton provides a central base for this. The Science Park is well known and also puts us in the middle of a thriving group of young growing companies and various support organisations for them. We look forward to continuing our support for the Black Country, particularly the manufacturing base as it helps drive the economic recovery of the UK”. Practice director, Phil Mulchinock adds: “The firm is experiencing high levels of instructions as our reputation for excellent trade mark, patent, copyright and IP advice continues to grow across the UK and internationally – Stoke and the Black Country remain important regional bases for Swindell & Pearson.”
