Bristows LLP

Bristows is a globally recognised law firm helping clients grow in life sciences, technology and the space in between. Bristows is a European headquartered hub for litigation, transactions and advice throughout the world and have remained fiercely independent since we first began in 1837.

Bristows has one of the most highly-regarded life sciences practices in the world. They have a true cross-disciplinary team encompassing our renowned IP practice, regulatory, competition, transactional, dispute resolution, IT and data protection teams. The strength of each individual practice complements the others to provide a fully integrated and comprehensive service.

Bristows life sciences specialists - many with backgrounds in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, genetics and neuroscience - work with leading clients across the private, public and academic sectors. They pride ourselves on the breadth of our client base in the sector and actively seek to advise clients from the different key participants making up the life sciences eco-system. As such they act for global pharma, specialist investors, growing biotech and medtech companies, universities and research institutes, specialist service providers and government funded bodies. Bristows clients also include tech companies now entering the sector as convergence takes hold.

Bristows believe that these different perspectives help them to best advise our clients and give true expertise in relation to the sector and where it is heading.
