HM Queen Elizabeth II 1926 – 2022

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II. The example she set throughout her lifetime of service to our country, will always be a source of strength and inspiration to us all.

Our thoughts are with the Royal family and you all, at this time of mourning.

Thank you ma’am, for everything.

Many of our Attorneys are members of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA). It was founded in 1882 and was incorporated by Royal Charter in 1891. HM Queen Elizabeth II visited CIPA in 1991.

Many of our clients in the UK and internationally have also sent their condolences to the Royal Family.

“Queen Elizabeth II was a stateswoman, not a scientist. But throughout her reign, she championed and embraced life science innovation. She made sure our society thought through and got comfortable with, the implications of what became scientifically possible… Our sector should never forget that the Queen took an active and personal interest in promoting UK early-stage life science entrepreneurship. She both hosted and attended the Buckingham Palace Pitch at the Palace events. The 2016 event was specifically focused on the promise of biotechnology.” – Steve Bates OBE CEO, BioIndustry Association
