The publication includes a number of testimonials about the firm including the following:

I have worked with a dozen European patent firms and none can match the synergy of the people (partners and associates) of Carpmaels. Their expertise, their dynamism, the energy to tackle problems and find solutions, and their ability to achieve success is incomparable to other firms. Exceptional use of technology. Exceptional collaboration with the client. Carpmaels offers and produces exceptional advice and outcomes.’

Carpmaels has a terrific team of partners and others with wide and deep experience in pharma. We not only benefit from their knowledge in prosecuting patents, but also rely on their advice relating to general strategy, opposition proceedings, and regulatory issues.  Carpmaels has a team dedicated to national validations that we employ regularly.  Carpmaels also has a team dedicated to SPC’s which we also take advantage of.  Rarely is there a need to seek advice elsewhere.’

Carpmaels & Ransford has a strong IP litigation team.  The team is experienced in both UK and EU litigation matters. In particular, I would engage Carpmaels for multi-jurisdiction litigation involving both US and UK. In addition to having a global view, the team has a solid understanding of US legal procedures.’

‘The Carpmaels team is very thorough in their approach to matters and consistently provided high quality work. Their strong attention to detail and hard work allowed them to develop a strategy quickly and refine it as the matter progressed.’
