A panel of lawyers within the firm’s IP and life sciences teams will give their insights on the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead as we emerge from the pandemic. All are STEM graduates who converted to law.

They will also discuss their career journeys to date, reflecting on how they leveraged their science backgrounds to advise Bristows’ roster of high-profile clients, which include start-ups and multi-nationals in the pharmaceutical, life sciences and electronics industries.

The speakers will also share their advice to the next generation of STEM students hoping to follow in their footsteps.
