Carpmaels & Ransford is a full-service European intellectual property firm at the forefront of a rapidly changing IP landscape.
As a trusted advisor to so many world-class companies and brands, we have been regarded as a pioneer in handling intellectual property for over 200 years. We are known for a consistent ability to anticipate client needs and apply unparalleled expertise to complex challenges.
We are unique in our ability to offer a truly integrated service, managing our clients’ intellectual property from inception to commercialisation, enforcement, litigation and defence.
What sets us apart?
We offer an industry leading training programme which will set you up with the knowledge and skills you need for a rewarding career in IP. We are passionate about what we do and this enthusiasm makes for a stimulating and dynamic environment. Our collaborative ethos is at the centre of everything we do. Joining us as part of a large trainee cohort allows you to build a support network from day one.
Through our programme you will gain colleagues and friends who will support you throughout your training and future career. You will be given varied and interesting work to do from day one. Working alongside partners and senior associates from across the firm, you will gain exposure to an extensive range of science and technology, giving you a thorough grounding in the areas we cover and the types of issues we help our clients with.
What can you expect?
Each year we take on up to 14 trainee patent attorneys. Trainee attorneys come on board as technical assistants and are assigned to one of our practice groups. However, there is strong integration across practice groups and teams and each new cohort works closely together, which makes for a dynamic and fun learning environment.
Once on board, you will participate in our six-month extensive tutorial programme before undertaking the Certificate in Intellectual Property law at Queen Mary College, London. As you progress through your career we continue to invest not only in your professional development, but also your commercial skills and business acumen.View Carpmaels & Ransford's Website
