About Bristows

Hero image for Bristows

We are Bristows, the world’s leading specialist law firm for clients that innovate.

We are a European headquartered hub for litigation, transactions and advice throughout the world. We help clients grow in life sciences, technology and other dynamic sectors. We provide advice on all their legal matters and are proud to be different.

At Bristows, we have always been at the forefront of change. From patenting the first electrical telegraph to launching the UK’s genome sequencing project, we have been helping clients who create and embrace new technologies and ideas.

We focus on dynamic, IP-rich sectors and have the expertise to solve a broad range of litigation, transactional, and advisory challenges. We have a true cross-disciplinary practice encompassing our renowned IP, competition, regulatory, corporate and commercial, dispute resolution, IT and data protection teams. The strength of each individual practice complements the others to provide a fully integrated and comprehensive service.

Bristows is a unique place to work, quite unlike most law firms. The firm’s fee-earners are not given billing targets, which has a significant impact on the atmosphere of the firm, fostering a supportive, human environment where the focus is on quality rather than quantity. The firm is genuinely encouraging and supportive of its lawyers, trainees and support staff.
