Bristows makes senior promotions

Bristows has appointed Liz Cohen as joint managing partner.

In her new role, Cohen will work alongside Marek Petecki, who also serves as joint managing partner at Bristows.

She will also continue in her role as co-head the firm’s life sciences practice, where she advises on patent ligation in the English Courts and litigation strategy for the European market.

Previously, Cohen has worked as an advisor for pharmaceutical and biotech companies, representing companies in patent matters in the UK.

She succeeds Theo Savvides, who passed away earlier this year.

Petecki commented: “Liz Cohen is a highly respected lawyer and a fantastic ambassador for the firm. I’m really looking forward to working with her in her new role, at what is a very exciting time for the firm.”

The firm has also promoted senior associates Gregory Bacon and Gemma Barrett to partner, effective 1 November.

Both Bacon and Barrett focus their practice on patent litigation.

Petecki added: “We are really thrilled that Gregory Bacon and Gemma Barrett will be joining our partnership. Their appointment further strengthens and deepens our market-leading patent litigation team, particularly on the life sciences side. On top of that, they are lovely colleagues and great representatives of our culture and way of doing things.”
