With a heritage of leadership, teamwork and family values, Carpmaels & Ransford is refreshingly different to many other firms

A stimulating environment offering new opportunities for professionals

If you’ve already started your journey in intellectual property, you will have acquired some valuable knowledge and skills, and a good understanding of the IP professions. However, you may be looking for a career path which is more stimulating and more enjoyable. You may be looking for greater rewards.

If you feel this way, why not come and talk to us? With a heritage of leadership, teamwork and family values, Carpmaels & Ransford is refreshingly different to many other firms. We’re experienced but never complacent, expert but always believing there’s more to learn, trusted by our clients but also trusted to think differently. A team united in its commitment to deliver the very best.

If you choose to join us, you will work alongside some of the most respected people in intellectual property, learning from them and from the rest of the team where personal egos are secondary to the collective added value we offer our clients.

Each year we have a number of opportunities for qualified or part-qualified patent or trade mark attorneys, as well as for qualified solicitors and barristers who will have already completed their trainee contracts or pupillage. Speculative applications from high-calibre candidates will be considered throughout the year. We also have opportunities for legal executives or paralegals to join our Dispute Resolution and Transactions teams.

“Having practised as a litigator in a large, international law firm, I was attracted by the prospect of working on interesting cases alongside patent and trade mark attorney colleagues. I haven’t looked back: the work is great, and the atmosphere is supportive and collaborative.”
