G&L Scientific was founded by industry veterans, Peter Griffin and Stephen Loughrey, following the sale of their former company, Pharmalink Consulting, in 2014.

Since then, G&L has experienced rapid growth, expanding into every major geography to become one of the most admired scientific consulting organizations.

With more than 2,500 consultants in over 100 countries, the key to G&L’s success is a straightforward, transparent approach; experience of unrivalled depth; and the recruitment and development of brilliant people. Indeed, the level of repeat business and ongoing long-term assignments is testament to the quality of service G&L provides.
