New Year Promotions

04 January 2016

We are delighted to announce three well-deserved promotions.

Dr Michael Pears has been promoted to Partner. After achieving a degree in Natural Sciences and a PhD in Biochemistry, both at Cambridge University, Michael joined the firm in 2006 where he practices in the Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals department. Michael has, in particular, developed experience in the niche area of Supplementary Protection Certificates.  Through their own research within the profession, Chambers & Partners, the legal directory, has identified him as “a rising star”.

Two Assistants have been promoted to Associates.

Dr Michael Linehan obtained his Physics degree at Exeter University, before achieving his doctorate in Theoretical Physics and undertaking an extensive career in research. Michael also obtained a law degree before joining the firm in 2012.  He advises clients in the physical sciences and computing fields.

Edward Leslie achieved a Masters of Chemistry from Durham University and, like Michael, joined the firm in 2012.  He advises clients in the chemistry field.

Very many congratulations to all three!
