David Keltie: a celebration of his life


It has been truly humbling, and deeply comforting, to have been inundated with so many lovely messages since we announced the passing of our beloved friend and colleague David Keltie. We appreciate each and every kind word.

A service in celebration of David’s wonderful life will take place in Southwark Cathedral at 3:30pm on Thursday 10 March. The service will be followed by a drinks reception.

As space and therefore numbers will be limited, we ask those who would like to attend to let us know as soon as possible please, by email to celebration@keltie.com. Further details of the event will be emailed to attendees in due course.

We look forward to sharing happy memories of David with the many people who loved him.


In his final weeks, David was cared for at the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead, London. Donations in David’s memory will help the Hospice to continue its wonderful work.

I want to create something amazing” isn’t a phrase that one expects to hear from an equity partner in an IP firm approaching his fiftieth birthday. But David Keltie loathed the idea of accumulating money simply to retire. His motto was that the older you get, the more risks you should take.


A sad announcement from Keltie


We are heartbroken to announce that our beloved friend and colleague David Keltie passed away on 6 January 2016 after a long illness, so bravely borne. May he rest in peace.

There will be a public celebration of David’s wonderful life in the coming weeks. Details of this and other tributes to David will be posted on our website and on our IPcopy blog soon.

Donations in David’s memory may be made to the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead, London.

champagneTweets emanating from INTA 2014 in Hong Kong have, so far, shared a common theme: “it’s raining”, “it’s pouring”, “the old m…”, well, you get the picture! So it is with great pleasure that we can offer a delightful counterpoint by congratulating Keltie’s Sean Cummings who got married today. Congratulations from everyone back here in London to Sean and Vivienne!

Here’s a few photos of the happy couple. (more…)

25 years ago, on 12th December 1988, David Keltie Associates started its life with David Keltie and Rosemary Cardas. Last weekend, to mark our 25th birthday, virtually the entire firm decamped to the banks of Loch Lomond in Scotland for a couple of days of celebration, reflections on the journey the firm has made so far and predictions for the journey still to come.
