 The Pinsent Masons team advising on the deal was led by Corporate Partner Russell Booker, assisted by Corporate Senior Associate Iain Butler, Corporate Solicitor James Paton-Philip, Legal Director Louise Fullwood (Commercial), Employment Partner Michael Ryley and Tax Senior Associate Conor Brindley.

 Commenting on the deal, Russell said: "We are delighted to have assisted Retroscreen with the AIM listing, which will enable the business to expand its clinical and pre-clinical offering in the UK."
