Richard Jackson

Managing Partner at Carpmaels & Ransford LLP

Richard Jackson is Carpmaels & Ransford LLP's managing partner. He has more than 30 years’ experience in the patent profession and sits within the engineering and tech practice group. He handles a range of subject matter in the mechanical and electrical engineering fields, including optics, software patents and internet-related issues. He has considerable experience in EPO oppositions and appeal proceedings, including hearings. He has also been involved in UK High Court and Patents County Court proceedings with solicitors and barristers. Mr Jackson focuses on providing practical advice, relating to drafting decisions, infringement and enforcement problems and foreign filing strategies.

Mr Jackson's practice covers a range of subject matter, from ‘simple engineering’ and material science-related projects (eg, carbon flywheels), to complex IT-related aspects of network systems and telecoms.

Mr Jackson also specialises in designs and design copyright matters, and understands the value of these often undervalued rights, having had considerable experience in successfully enforcing both registered and unregistered design rights.

Mr Jackson's experience is accentuated by his membership with the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys and of the Intellectual Property Office Industrial Designs Committee. He is also a regular observer at Asian Patent Attorneys Association meetings.

Mr Jackson studied both physics and chemistry at university. As such, he is well placed to advise on technical subject matter across the engineering and tech practice. His notable work includes successfully handling automotive applications – particularly in the electro-mechanical area of car dashboard displays, printer inks and the engineering of inkjet and laser printers – tooling and borehole monitoring applications in the mining industry and heavy-duty engineering in the defence and aerospace environments.
