Bristows was the most prominent law firm in Britain specialising in patent law until the late 1960s. Their strong track record was evidenced by their ability to retain the most prominent patent barristers of each generation and their regular appearance in law reports always representing the main litigants in cases that shaped the history of patent law. Their location was also key, the firm was in Lincoln’s Inn Fields on the legal district of London, close to the Royal Courts of Justice and the Patent Office. The firm had become well-known for its role in advising the Institute of Patent Agents on the granting of its Royal Charter and became heavily involved in patent work concerning the electric telegraph and the jet engine.
