Alice qualified in 2019 and supports the commercial, IP and IT team across several sectors. Alice has been involved in advising on a variety of commercial contracts, including research collaboration agreements, master service agreements, material transfer agreements, procurement matters, subcontracting arrangements, confidentiality agreements, grant agreements, heads of terms, general terms of business, and intellectual property matters (such as licensing), to name a few.

What can Alice do for you?

Alice is a commercial solicitor with a particular interest in the life sciences sector. She regularly advises on research collaboration agreements (including international arrangements), material transfer agreements, grant agreements, intellectual property matters (such as licensing), and general commercial contracts. Alice also frequently provides support on NHS and independent health sector contracts and projects.

Supporting your ambitions

Alice’s recent experience includes:

  • Regularly working closely with in-house counsel at a world-leading charitable research institute.  Alice enjoys collaborating with and supporting a range of individuals and departments, including scientists, research governance, HR, IT, procurement, and research managers. This experience has been invaluable in developing Alice’s commercial appreciation of the institute’s interests and needs, both as a charity and research organisation, extending far beyond the law.
  • Advising on a large procurement project with tight deadlines, which involved identifying and analysing numerous relevant contractual documents, taking a proactive approach to resolving issues and ensuring consistency.
  • Supporting a life sciences client, as part of a wider team, on a complex licensing transaction, including collating and addressing client comments and concerns.
  • Preparing a sub-contract for a complicated and substantial head contract, which could not be attached to the sub-contract due to the commercially sensitive nature of its content. This required detailed analysis of the head contract, to ensure inclusion of appropriate obligations, while taking a risk-based approach, keeping in mind the strategic importance of the client/subcontractor relationship.
  • Working on a complex outsourcing deal, which involved keeping track of, and implementing, multiple strands of instructions.
