Our culture

Whatever your role, working at Abel & Imray is about:

Being open

In an environment that’s welcoming and supportive, we get the best out of each member of every team. 

Finding a balance

Ours is a family-friendly firm. Because, by helping employees balance work and home life, in supporting and challenging them, we know they’ll be able to offer our clients superb service – every day.

Joining forces

There are times – and cases – when two, three or many more heads are better than one. So you’ll often find us partnering on cases, both in-house and with organisations worldwide. But it’s not just limited to our attorneys. Every day sees our legal professionals and support teams work closely together. 

Inspiring day-to-day

We split our time between direct client and agency cases. This gives everyone, at every level, the opportunity to work closely with clients’ commercial and technical divisions, on a range of innovations and IP challenges.

Standing for equality

We’re proud to be an equal opportunities employer, an early Signatory to the IP Inclusive scheme and involved with Women in Science and Engineering (WISE)

Sharing expertise

Through supporting a national technology competition for schools, we show students how to protect their intellectual property.  We also regularly work with the UK Intellectual Property Office to promote IP awareness, giving talks at IP Masterclasses and running a patent drafting workshop for trainee patent attorneys.
