The Carpmaels & Ransford Trade Marks team was awarded a Silver ranking in WTR 2016: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals. Our team was recognised as offering a more holistic approach, making us a cost-effective option for brand owners looking to consolidate their outside counsel panels in order to reduce legal spend and avoid logistical headaches.
"Prosecution award winner Carpmaels & Ransford has significantly expanded its contentious practice; the September 2014 hire of Ian Kirby and Jonathan Day from US outfit Arnold & Porter was a savvy play that has enabled it to go head to head with top solicitors’ firms in pitches for litigation and enforcement work – and win. Its bread-and-butter prosecution operation continues to perform flawlessly, managed by practitioners who excel at finding creative ways to maximise the impact of their clients’ brands in the international business environment. Former head of trademarks Keith Howick now acts as a consultant. He has a virtually unmatched level of experience in oppositions and his seniority lends him a great deal of gravitas in settlement negotiations. A major player in the International Trademark Association (INTA), he is clued up on all the latest happenings in the trademark world.”
