‘For many years we had been claiming successfully under the R&D Tax Credit scheme when approached by The MPA Group to discuss our claim process. Our initial reaction was that we were happy with our claim process however, after a short meeting with one of MPA’s advisors it became apparent that we were probably missing areas of eligibility and as a result under claiming significantly. 

 We decided to engage MPA and in short, they exceeded our expectations! 

 The work activity of Everest Biotech was comprehensively assessed by one of MPA’s industry analysts – their skills and expertise highlighted MPA’s particular process, one that produced a significant increase to our benefit. Equally important to us was the justification which was reasoned rather than being pushed on us and, the process provided clarity and support throughout but didn’t commit a lot of our own time. This is something that we could never have achieved as it clearly requires a technical competence, in depth knowledge of the scheme and a strong understanding of how it can be interpreted. 

 Our message is that if you are claiming don’t assume it is a ‘good claim’ – take the time to review it with The MPA Group!

Summerfield Browne

summerfield browne logo

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.
