November 29, 2007

Gary Howes, Head of the Life Sciences Group in the London office, has been shortlisted as 'Deal Lawyer of the Year' in the prestigious 2007 British Legal Awards which are sponsored by Legal Week. The winners of the 24 different categories will be announced this month, at the British Legal Awards ceremony at Old Billingsgate.

An extract from our submission provided a short biography on Gary "Gary, who joined the firm in 1993, is a charismatic New Zealander with a rare ability to communicate complex legal information to laymen - including his clients - in non-legal terms. His incisive intellect enables him to grasp potentially difficult and ruinous problems and solve them with unerring consistency. It is a skill that is much admired by his clients and his peers and has been recognised by many in the industry including European Counsel Life Sciences' Industry Report which placed him in its 'Super league for intellectual property' and Chambers UK 2007 where he is described as 'a marvel in commercial agreements' and Legal 500. Gary's clients include Antisoma, SkyePharma and UCB, all of whom provided glowing references for his Award entry."
