Driving Diversity: Our D&I Journey


Join us in creating a better future of work that’s inclusive. At Keltie, opportunities are for all, not a select few.

Our commitment extends beyond words—we support inclusivity through our DICE
(Diversity, Inclusion, Charity, and Environment) committee. This team’s mission is to ensure we see change in diversity, inclusion, and sustainability at Keltie and within the industry.

35 years of Keltie


In 2023, Keltie turned 35. From the early foundations of setting up a trade mark law firm to the COVID-19 pandemic and becoming the successful IP firm it is today, Keltie has seen a lot of changes.

"I want to create something amazing," were the words of David Keltie when he started the firm in 1988. David was tired of the values of some of the traditional patent and trade mark firms, which were old-fashioned and hierarchical. David’s dream was to create a firm where every person was equal. One where there was no ‘them and us’ attitude or perception.

At Keltie, David brought together like-minded people who loved their jobs and wanted to be a part of his dream. He brought all the good things he had learned from working in his previous firms but left all the ‘bad’ things behind.

The reputation that Keltie has built for over thirty years as a personal, forward-thinking, and principled firm speaks for itself. As David said, “Our people make the difference."
