Secerna LLP expands to North East
A York based firm of patent and trade mark attorneys are expanding with the opening of a new office in Newcastle.

Secerna LLP, a firm of Patent and Trade Mark attorneys based in The Catalyst, are pleased to announce further expansion with the opening of a new office in Newcastle upon Tyne. 

Jason Boakes (Chairman) explains:  “We have expanded rapidly since being established in 2011 and our growing team complements this technology mix very well. It therefore made sense for our next move to be expansion into the north east.

We have chosen a location for our new office right in the heart of Newcastle city centre which puts us close to many of the small technology businesses clustered around the centre of Newcastle as well as providing great access to many of the more established companies on the outskirts of Newcastle, in Gateshead, Durham and beyond.” 

Secerna’s Newcastle office will be led by Dan Mercer, an experienced attorney specialising in software, electronics and telecoms. Dan adds: “I am very excited about my recent move to Secerna and the opening of our Newcastle office. The north east is home to a large number of innovative companies and we are excited about the opportunity to assist these companies protecting and exploiting their Intellectual Assets. ”
Dan will be regularly supported by other attorneys from the Secerna team including Charlotte Watkins (Partner) specialising in life sciences and Adrian Sewell (Senior Associate) specialising in mechanical engineering.

As growth continues, Secerna’s plan is to expand their York and Newcastle offices to add further expertise across all technical sectors.
