"Bristows LLP successfully defended Google against Streetmap in a High Court claim for abuse of dominant position, and represented Samsung in regards to a major patent dispute with Unwired Planet, which involved the consideration of the competition law issue of patent “privateering”.

Sophie Lawrance was promoted to partner and ‘has the perfect balance of technical competition and litigation skills’."
