Abel & Imray is a United Kingdom firm of patent and trade mark attorneys, with offices in London, Bath, and Cardiff, with a small presence in Munich.[1][2][3] It was founded in 1871 by Charles Denton Abel and John Imray,[4] which makes it one of the oldest patent and trade mark attorney firms in the UK still trading under its original name. John Imray and Charles Abel were amongst those individuals who set up CIPA (the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys) in 1891 and were, respectively, the second and sixth Presidents of CIPA.
