Carpmaels & Ransford LLP

Carpmeals & Ransford

Company Profile

Carpmaels & Ransford LLP is a leader in the European IP market having driven innovation in the industry for over 200 years.

Our Trade Marks practice encompasses the entire trade mark life cycle. This includes advisory and clearance work, worldwide filing, prosecution and registration and beyond to enforcement, disputes and litigation, as well as licensing, contractual and transactional matters. The team steers clients carefully through the complex issues surrounding trade mark, design and copyright law. We are active before the UKIPO, the EUIPO, WIPO, and regularly appear before the UK Courts, the General Court and Court of Justice in addition to co-ordinating multi-jurisdictional litigation.

We pride ourselves on our ability to understand our clients’ businesses and provide bespoke solutions which help them meet their objectives. Our team adds value by thinking beyond a problem or situation, always seeking to improve the client’s position. Often, a client’s interests are best served by an amicable solution with third parties. We are skilled at negotiating resolutions to conflicts, on both a national and international level. However, where the situation demands it, we are equally well-versed in enforcing and defending our client’s rights in contentious IPO and Court proceedings.

Our team includes solicitors, trade mark attorney litigators, trade mark attorneys, paralegals and a specialist formalities team. With this blended capability we are ideally equipped to deal with any contentious or non-contentious issue.

Our offices

We have offices in London, Munich and Dublin.
