Profile

James Fry

Description

As a chemistry graduate from a family of patent attorneys and medics, James Fry is in the right job. Two years ago, after almost two decades at Eversheds, Fry moved to Mills & Reeve, and now heads the firm’s life sciences practice. He combines specialism in IP, product development and commercialisation for pharma and biotech companies with his responsibility for overseeing the work done by colleagues across the firm’s other practice areas, including M&A, capital markets, HR disputes and real estate. ‘You get a buzz working in this sector,’ says Fry, ‘due to the endgame. For example, we’re working with a rare diseases company developing treatments that will make a fundamental difference to patients.’
