Kasia Ksiezopolska
Legal Support

A paralegal in the Transactions Group, Kasia has experience of a wide range of recordal and chain of title issues for a diverse range of clients, including coordinating large multijurisdictional recordal programmes and advising on assignment, merger, licence and security interest recordal procedures.

Central to Kasia’s practice is her experience of navigating documentary requirements and notarial procedures globally. She often liaises with London notaries assisting clients with obtaining country/office specific notarisations and legalisations (consular or Apostille). A recent example of her work saw her navigate complex legalisation requirements for documents filed at the Gulf Council Patent Office. In this case, the most obvious embassy through which to legalise documents had recently changed its processes, creating confusion as to its approach. Kasia was able to use her understanding of the requirements and her connections with local attorneys to provide the client with a more efficient and faster alternative.

Kasia’s experience extends to chain of title and priority entitlement research. She has assisted in applications for correction of patent application details at the European Patent Office by drafting correction requests and supporting witness statements, several of which have recently seen successful outcomes. She also assists in multi-jurisdiction restoration cases.

Kasia joined Carpmaels & Ransford in August 2014 having previously worked in the Civil Service. Kasia is currently deepening her knowledge of intellectual property law and practice through a part-time Post Graduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law.

Outside work, Kasia is a music enthusiast whose tastes range from Ten Years After to Caribou. A film fan, she can often be found in Islington’s Screen on the Green. She is also a keen skier and a qualified Yacht Coastal Skipper.
