Bristows opens Dublin office


Bristows is delighted to announce the opening of its new office based in the historical Merrion Street, Dublin.

With its long history in providing outstanding Patent Litigation advice and the launch of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) this summer, establishing a Dublin office is an exciting step for the firm and gives Bristows’ lawyers in specific practice areas the opportunity to practice as dual-qualified lawyers for the benefit of our clients.

Myles Jelf, Patent Litigation and Bristows (Ireland) Partner: “With our clients’ needs front of mind, Bristows has been very closely following, and is proud to have been deeply engaged in, the development of the UPC – a project that has been decades in the making. We look forward to representing clients in the new system, with our legally and technically qualified representatives operating from our existing London and Brussels offices as well as our recently opened Dublin office.”

Stephen Smith, Competition Partner and Bristows Joint Managing Partner: “I am tremendously excited about the opening of our Dublin office which forms part of our Patent Litigation strategy in light of the opening of the UPC and supports our continued work with clients on pan-European matters, post-Brexit.”
