Biotechnology Solicitors & Life Sciences Solicitors & Biogenerics Solicitors
We are a modern and progressive biotechnology law firm and we operate a new legal services business model, which combines the best aspects of a traditional law firm, with cutting edge developments in the modern provision of legal services.
What differentiates us from most traditional solicitors practises is that we operate a hybrid legal services business model. This means that in addition to employing lawyers we also appoint consultant solicitors who deliver legal services on our behalf. Many of our consultant solicitors work remotely from low cost premises and using the latest IT infrastructure deliver fast, effective and efficient legal services.
Our business model has a very low cost base. With the exception of our administrative headquarters we only use serviced offices for basic needs such as telephone answering. Any additional fees for using meeting rooms are only incurred, as and when we use the rooms. Where possible we pass these cost savings back to our clients in the form of costs effective fee rates. We do not incur the significant cost overheads, including expensive premises, of more traditional law firms.
Our expert team of biotechnology solicitors deliver a wide range of biotechnology legal services including advice in relation to developing, protecting, exploiting and enforcing biotechnology related rights. We believe that as a result of the specialist expertise of our biotechnology lawyers, we should be able to add value to your business.
Our life sciences solicitors are highly experienced in assisting and advising life science companies on a diverse range of legal matters including intellectual property and contractual matters. Our team of life science lawyers include patent agents with significant experience of advising on the protection of intellectual property rights including patent rights. In addition, our team also includes life science solicitors with expertise in advising on general intellectual property, commercial law and corporate law matters including fund raisings.
