Daniel Bright


Daniel joined Carpmaels & Ransford in September 2019 as a Trainee Patent Attorney, working in both the Chemistry and Pharmaceuticals teams. Prior to joining the firm, Daniel worked for Imperial Innovations, the technology transfer company for Imperial College London. His role involved identifying patentable and commercially valuable inventions produced at the university and managing the company’s Physical Science, Engineering, and Technology patent portfolios.

In July 2018, he completed a Master’s degree at New College, Oxford. His fourth year research project focussed on configurational disorder in metal-organic framework compounds. He used single crystal X-ray diffraction in combination with computational methods to identify the structure of and examine the behaviour of materials with unconventional crystal structures.

Daniel was awarded a first-class degree, an academic scholarship for his performance in examinations, and received special recognition for his Master’s year project, being named as the runner-up for the 2018 thesis prize by the Oxford University Honour School of Chemistry.

Outside of the office, Daniel enjoys football, squash, and powerlifting. When not playing sport, he can be found improving his German language skills.
