Summerfield Browne

Summerfield Browne Solicitors are a modern and progressive law firm and we operate a new legal services business model, which combines the best aspects of a traditional law firm, with cutting edge developments in the modern provision of legal services. What differentiates us from most traditional solicitors practises is that we operate a hybrid legal services business model. This means that in addition to employing lawyers we also appoint consultant solicitors who deliver legal services on our behalf, as and when we need. Our business model/ structure has a very low cost base, and we do not incur the significant cost overheads, of more traditional law firms, which means we can pass those cost savings back to our clients in the form of competitive fees.

Summerfield Browne Solicitors has extensive experience of advising on life science and biotechnology legal matters, including advising on the development, protection, exploitation and enforcement of biotechnology-related rights. More specifically we can advise on the following:

  1. Life Science regulation and regulatory approval.
  2. Commercial contracts including joint ventures, commercial collaborations, research and development agreements, terms and conditions, agency, supply and distribution agreements.
  3. Buying and selling businesses and companies and also undertaking due diligence.
  4. Fundraisings and investments including private equity, venture capital and angel investments.
  5. All aspects of intellectual property including intellectual property development, registering patents (we have dedicated patent agents who work for us) and licensing of intellectual property.
  6. Enforcing or defending intellectual property infringement actions, breach of contract claims and other commercial litigation matters.


BenchSci’s mission is ending reagent failure to drive discovery.

For biomedical researchers who are starting experiments, BenchSci is a reagent intelligence platform that transforms published data into experiment-specific recommendations to reduce time, money, and uncertainty in planning materials and methods. Unlike PubMed, Google Scholar, reagent directories, and vendors, BenchSci uses machine learning to decode open- and closed-access data and present published figures with actionable insights.

In partnership with publishers including Springer Nature, and using data from over 300 antibody vendors, BenchSci has created the world’s most comprehensive dataset of 3.7 million commercial antibodies, 70,000 unique clones, and over 300,000 published figures.  With BenchSci, researchers can search published figures by protein, gene, clone, product, or technique, and use filters to find the right antibody for their project in minutes.
