Bristows hires Arnold & Porter partner to boost life sciences team

Arnold & Porter partner Richard Dickinson has joined Bristows as a partner in its commercial and IP transactional practice in London.

With a background in biochemistry, Dickinson focuses on the commercialisation and exploitation of IP rights.

Liz Cohen, joint managing partner and life sciences co-chair, said: “We are delighted to welcome Richard to the firm. He brings more than 25 years of experience in IP and commercial transactions, as well as a deep understanding of the life sciences legal landscape.”

Dickinson’s appointment is the latest of several additions to the firm’s expanding life sciences team in the last 18 months, which have included the recruitment of pharma regulatory specialist partner Alex Denoon and his team and the promotion of Claire Smith to partner in the commercial and IP transactions team.

“I am thrilled to be joining Bristows,” said Dickinson. “Their reputation for working with IP-rich and innovative clients is second to none and I am particularly looking forward to working with my new colleagues to further expand the transactional side of the practice, notably in the life sciences sector.”
