The JUVE Patent UK recognises UK intellectual property firms and practitioners with a leading reputation in their fields. The extensive research process includes interviews with clients, academics, lawyers, and judges.
JUVE includes the following quotes about the firm in the litigation category:
“For many years now, the patent litigation practice at Carpmaels & Ransford has enjoyed a strong position in the London market, which extends Europe-wide when it comes to both patent prosecution and litigation in the pharma and biotech fields.”
“Only few other London litigation practices have a presence in pharma proceedings on the side of originator companies to rival that of Carpmaels. What is more, the teams at Powell Gilbert, Allen & Overy and Hogan Lovells have not been able to shine with a mixed approach of litigators and patent attorneys. When it comes to EPO oppositions and appeals, Carpmaels plays in the top European league with Hoffmann Eitle and Vossius & Partner.”
“Now that a 2022 start of the UPC is on the horizon, Carpmaels has several aces up its sleeve. The highly litigation-experienced European patent attorneys, although mostly UK nationals, can represent cases before the UPC.”
