Simon Bradbury

Partner at Appleyard Lees

Simon Bradbury’s practice encompasses a wide range of technologies within life sciences, biotechnology and medical devices; he represents clients from multi-nationals to universities and innovative spin-out companies.

Mr Bradbury can advise on patent strategy and has been involved in multi-jurisdictional litigation in Europe, the United States and Asia Pacific. He also advises on IP-related agreements and helps clients negotiate and structure research and licensing deals and open innovation programmes.

He is particularly experienced in formulating IP strategies for start-ups, spin-outs and SMEs. He enjoys undertaking an in-depth analysis of business plans, budgets, exit strategies and current IP position, and then clearly sets out patent filing programmes to maximise and extend patent protection, while also ensuring trouble-free product launch or licensing by undertaking freedom-to-operate analysis. He handles due diligence for investors and has been involved with a number of company listings on the London Stock Exchange.

With previous in-house experience, Mr Bradbury is able to provide an invaluable commercial perspective from which to deliver clear and concise advice to his clients. Indeed, he acts as ‘in-house’ attorney for many of his clients, and often attends board meetings and is involved as a key member of the team during commercial discussions.
