Scotland has a long and proud tradition in education and innovation.
At Blackadders, we understand that the role of our major educational institutions continues to evolve as they operate at the intersection of learning, social purpose, culture, business, research and technological advancement.
For several years, our multi-disciplinary team has provided forward-thinking, hands-on advice to universities, colleges, innovation centres and those collaborating with them, across a range of projects.
Our experience includes: working on major international collaborations as part of the in-house team at a leading university; advising higher education institutions on a range of employment law and HR matters, including high profile employment tribunals; obtaining sponsor licenses for businesses, active membership of the BioDundee steering group (working with education and industry to promote one of the UK’s leading life sciences clusters); and supporting the University of Dundee’s Centre for Entrepreneurship with various initiatives.One recent success story that we are very proud of is advising the founders of leading life sciences company, Cypex Ltd, on its sale to New York based BioIVT, 23 years after advising on its spinout from the University of Dundee.
