Harry specialises in life sciences contracts, including research and development, collaboration, manufacturing, distribution, supply and services agreements, as well as all the ancillary documents that go together with them. He also advises on intellectual property transactions such as patent licence deals. With many of those types of agreements, there are usually related issues concerning life sciences product regulation and, increasingly, the use and exploitation of health data.
Having supported clients on many of these types of contracts, transactions and related issues, Harry can help clients to protect their interests, set up the contractual structure for their commercial objectives, and get to signatures without too much pain.
A life sciences lawyer must grapple with difficult issues and complex subject matter, often in areas that lack template contracts and clear legal precedents. Harry has worked in those areas for over 10 years. He has experience as an associate in two other law firms, as a busy in-house lawyer conducting international negotiations on a daily basis, and as a leading life sciences knowledge lawyer.
Harry has an identical twin brother. Being a twin was what sparked Harry’s interest in biology at school. Then, Harry started his deep interest in the life sciences sector as a Genetics undergraduate.
Once Harry puts down the pen, he likes to swim with his two kids, escape to the countryside, and play music (mainly on guitar, but he’s also learning drums and piano). Harry used to run a popular singing group in Bristol, although he claims his vocal chords are a little rusty now.
