Highly-recommended - Firms: transactions
When it comes to getting high-rolling, IP-rich transactions across the line, few firms do it better than Anderson Law. The last year saw it broker a range of technology transfer agreements for world-leading academic institutions, including City, University of London; and a set of R&D agreements for university spin-out Zoe Global in relation to its covid-19 symptom study app. Universities and technology-driven enterprises look to Lisa Allebone for crisp, finely drafted contracts that effectively commercialise their patents. The physics PhD has a wealth of biotechnology and pharmaceutical insight. Also covering the life sciences is managing partner and namesake Mark Anderson, who is distinguished not just for his stellar work record, but also for the award-winning course he runs annually for IP transactional lawyers at University College London. Making his debut in the IAM Patent 1000, IT specialist Paul MacLennan is a fan favourite of multinationals and leading UK universities, and “brings credibility, capability and competence to any team, spending time briefing on the various possible approaches”.
