Anderson Law LLP, a leading intellectual property (IP) firm providing expert legal advice to businesses and research communities, has established new offices at Howbery Business Park, near Wallingford.
The technology law practice has recently expanded, taking on two new partners, Stephen Brett and AnnMarie Humphries, bringing its number of partners to five. The firm specialises in IP and commercial contracts in the life sciences, IT, engineering, NHS and gaming sectors.
Much of Anderson Law’s recent work involves assisting universities and technology-based companies, in the UK and overseas, with the drafting and negotiation of commercial agreements where IP is important. One large project recently completed for government agency, Enterprise Ireland, has produced template agreements designed to be used by Irish universities and industry.
Top-ranked by Chambers UK, the firm is particularly known for its work advising some of the UK’s leading universities and SMEs, as well as a range of technology-based start-ups and spin-outs. The practice also works with NHS Trusts and government agencies, in addition to supporting new businesses and charities.
Mark Anderson, founder and managing partner of Anderson Law LLP, said: “We are delighted with our move to Howbery Park. The setting of the offices, and the facilities available, are fantastic. Our new offices give us space to grow and to develop our firm to the next stage, and they are consistent with our vision of offering excellent legal services in a different environment to that of our competitors based in traditional City law firms.”
Donna Bowles, Howbery Park estates manager, added: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Anderson Law to Howbery Park. Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley region generally are at the forefront of innovation and the development of new technologies, so Anderson Law’s technology-based legal support will be well-placed at Howbery Park which is easily accessible from Oxford, Reading and Didcot.”
