Following its inclusion in last year’s FT special report, Keltie and its sister firm K2 have again been recognised as being among Europe’s leading patent law firms in 2020. The report, which is available on the FT website, is based on recommendations from thousands of clients and professional peers.

Ranked seventh in the list of 160 firms recommended across the whole of Europe, Keltie has been particularly recommended in all six core technology sectors. It received the highest Gold ranking in the sectors of IT & Software, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering and a Silver ranking in Materials & Nanotechnology, plus Bronze rankings in Biotechnology & Food and in Chemistry & Pharmaceuticals.

Keltie’s pioneering virtual firm K2 also achieved Silver rankings in Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering.

Keltie Partner Dr Shakeel Ahmad, who heads up the firm’s Software, Telecoms and IT team, commented: “Everyone at Keltie is delighted to receive such recognition from our clients and peers. We pride ourselves on looking after our clients and so it is especially pleasing to have such feedback across all sectors of the firm. In our team, we are particularly thrilled to receive a Gold ranking for the work we do for our electronics and software tech clients and this is a testament to the care and effort all of the team put into that work.”

Sean Cummings, a Partner in Keltie’s Engineering team and Director of the firm’s Irish operation, added: “It’s wonderful to see that our technical experience and commercial nous have delighted our clients and earned the respect of our fellow professionals.”

The FT report was compiled with input from the leading market research company Statista, which generated the results based on client and peer surveys. Recommendations were collected from patent attorneys registered to act before the European Patent Office and from applicants for European patents who have used a patent law firm in the countries covered by the European patent system.
