Rebecca Satchwell


Rebecca’s work spans both the Pharmaceuticals and Chemistry teams at Carpmaels & Ransford. She handles a variety of subject-matter ranging from NCEs and medical uses, formulations and polymorphs to consumer products and medical devices. Rebecca particularly enjoys working across the full lifetime of a patent portfolio by following an invention through examination, opposition, SPCs and possible litigation, and she recently gained valuable experience in the latter by assisting the Dispute Resolution team with a UK High Court case. Rebecca is currently involved in several multi-party opposition proceedings for a blockbuster pharmaceutical as well as the strategic considerations for the wider portfolio.

Rebecca graduated from the University of Oxford in 2017, having obtained a first class Master’s degree and a thesis prize for her final year project investigating distance distributions of metalloporphyin complexes using pulse-induced dipolar modulation enhancement of electron paramagnetic resonance. During her time at Oxford, she was awarded a scholarship at Corpus Christi College for her academic achievements, and was a choral bursar for her college choir.

Rebecca is an avid reader and the founder of the Carpmaels & Ransford book club. She loves to spend time in the kitchen, especially when able to share the results with friends or her (very large) extended family.
