We know that when we listen to each other and work as a team, we are more likely to avoid well-worn paths and arrive in new and exciting places


We expect you to contribute and perform, but not without investment on our part

You already know the value of hard work and perseverance. You’ve succeeded many times already and you are accomplished in many aspects of your life. What you are looking for is the next step, something to lead you to greater fulfilment. At Carpmaels & Ransford we see that fulfilment as a journey and destination; a journey that will lead you to rewards both in the future and along the way.

We won’t mislead you. When you step into the intellectual property landscape, there are plenty of obstacles to negotiate. It can be intense, with some tricky scenarios. However, you won’t be on your own. Our partners are there to guide, support and encourage you, making sure that the experience is not only challenging, but also enjoyable and rewarding on a daily basis. From our newest recruits to our most experienced partners, we are on this journey together.

That’s why we share knowledge and expertise, and pool our resources. We know that when we listen to each other and work as a team, we are more likely to avoid well-worn paths and arrive in new and exciting places. This approach is good for our clients and it’s good for you, no matter how early in your career you are.

Having fun

Holborn is a vibrant work environment with plenty of shops and eating places and some of London’s most beautiful squares right on the doorstep

We take advantage of this great location to nip out for informal lunches or join up together for a drink after work.  We also have an in-house café with an adjoining terrace, providing an easy meeting point for lunch and informal meetings.  New Year and Summer parties are regular features on our social calendar.

With energy to burn, we are regular participants in inter-firm sports tournaments and we also field a large contingent of runners in the Standard Chartered Great City Race each year, plus many individual efforts such as the London to Brighton bike ride, the Three Peaks Challenge and a marathon here and there.  We also have plenty of music enthusiasts, from drummers and guitarists, to heavy-metal enthusiasts, orchestral performers and Glastonbury fanatics.
