Mills & Reeve has expanded its corporate practice with the appointment of Kristian Shearsby in London

Kristian is a corporate lawyer who specialises in advising clients in the life sciences sector.  His work includes venture capital investments, mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and other securities issues. Kristian has worked with companies at all stages of development, from early-stage through to listed public companies and investment funds and banks.

Kristian was formerly a counsel in the corporate team at Covington & Burling and will work closely with Head of Life Sciences James Fry and alongside the Mills & Reeve life sciences team across its network of offices. 

James said: “It’s really exciting that Kristian has joined us, his experience and knowledge of the sector means that we are able to offer our clients the full service technical expertise expected of sophisticated pharmaceutical and biotech clients, together with a deep understanding of their strategic objectives. His experience with a number of international law firms in London advising on cross-border transactions is particularly important, as most of our clients now operate internationally and need this specialist advice.”

Kristian said: “I am delighted to have joined Mills & Reeve and am really looking forward to working with my new colleagues. The firm is developing an exciting and sector focussed corporate practice in London and establishing a really strong reputation for life sciences transactional work, with legal experts supporting commercial clients and academic institutions in the key life sciences clusters across the country.”
