Bristows has appointed partner Rosemary Choueka and announced the promotion of three associates to the partnership next May.
Choueka is to join Bristows as a partner in the competition team. She joins from Lawrence Graham, where she was also a partner and head of EU, competition and regulation.
She specialises in EU and UK competition law and is also well known for her public procurement work, having advised both public and private sector bodies on procurement in the context of projects including business services, technology, infrastructure, regeneration, housing, development, leisure, culture and heritage.
Dominic Adair, Jeremy Blum and Adrian Sim are to be promoted in May.
Adair, who trained with the firm and qualified in September 2004, will be working principally in the areas of patent litigation, life sciences and biologics, while Blum works in brands litigation and is an intellectual property (IP) specialist who has advised on many contentious matters involving patents, trademarks, copyright and confidential information.
Sim is an information technology specialist and will be helping to further develop the firm’s digital media practice. He joined the IT practice at Bristows in 2008 from the technology group of a large Australian law firm.
