Highly-recommended - Firms: transactions
Despite its modest size, Anderson Law has gained a reputation as one of the best IP transactional practices on the London market, thanks to its razor-sharp focus and the pedigree of its eponymous founder, Mark Anderson. The group is especially strong when working with universities, and has handled a number of licence and technology transfer agreements over the last year for City, University of London, as well as research contracts and collaborations for University College London (UCL). Anderson himself is well known for another reason within the latter university, teaching a self-devised and award-winning course on IP transactional issues there. Working alongside him on UCL’s IP issues are Lisa Allebone and Paul Maclennan. Allebone holds a PhD in physics, granting her with extra technical understanding in addition to her 16 years’ experience working on patent transactions, while computer science expert Maclennan is said to “always respond in a prompt manner, with the minimum of fuss and a focus on the most significant issues”. “Anderson Law delivers an excellent service, always offering a considered and prompt response to queries. The team considers not only the legal issues but also the commercial implications, and provides clear information, guidance and advice to help guide clients to the rightdecisions.”
