Adam works within the Engineering and Tech teams at Carpmaels & Ransford. Adam covers a broad range of technologies within these teams, from industrial scale renewable energy solutions to precision surgical instruments. He has represented clients before the Examining and Opposition Divisions, and at the Boards of Appeal.

When not in the office Adam enjoys watching and playing as much sport as possible, usually field hockey and tennis, and has an adopted interest in any sport with a three letter acronym from family living across the pond.
