Haseltine Lake announces the appointment of Dr. Joseph Lenthall as a Partner in the firm’s Chemistry and Life Science team. He will be based in the firm’s Bristol office. Joseph joins Haseltine Lake from another leading IP firm, where he had been a partner for a number of years.

Joseph has developed substantial technical and professional expertise in the fields of new pharmaceutical chemical entities (including protein kinase inhibitors, ADCs and PROTACs), radiopharmaceuticals, oral protein formulations, assay devices, fibreglass technology and consumer product formulations. He has worked with large corporates and SMEs, as well as universities and research institutions.

Joseph comments: “I am excited to join Haseltine Lake at a time when the team is growing. The way in which Haseltine Lake works openly and collaboratively with clients is very much aligned with my client-focussed approach to business. I’m particularly looking forward to bringing my Opposition and Appeal expertise to the group and to Haseltine Lake’s clients.”

Alex Rogers, a senior partner in the Chemistry and Life Sciences team of Haseltine Lake, adds, “We warmly welcome Joseph, who will further strengthen our Chemistry and Life Sciences team, particularly our Oppositions and Appeals capability.
