Establishing and Forming New Businesses

Our team has counseled entrepreneurs and business owners on the array of legal issues when forming a business in the biotech industry. We advise on entity selection, assist with the legalities of financing options, assist with organization management and corporate governance, provide insight into strategic partnering, and help guide owners and executives as they grow and expand their businesses. 

Protecting Intellectual Property

We also have experience in Intellectual Property Law including patent, trademark, and copyright matters. Our patent attorneys work with clients to maintain their competitive edge in the biotechnology space by helping to obtain, protect, and enforce patents. We understand these patents are the backbone of those in the biotech field. Our Patent attorneys have extensive experience enforcing and licensing patents in the U.S. and internationally. Beyond assisting with patents, we also handle trademark and copyright matters, including prosecution and registration. Our team has also handled negotiating licensing rights and agreements. 

Regulatory and Compliance 

The biotechnology industry is heavily regulated at the federal level by the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Our attorneys have counseled clients through regulations that apply to the production, sale, and use of biotech products.


The lawyers within the Biotechnology Group have experience in handling financings for public and non-public offerings, mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, initial financing transactions, and venture capital investments.

The lawyers of our Biotechnology Group can provide comprehensive coverage for the variety of legal services needed in the biotechnology, medical device, and health services industries. From concept to implementation and beyond, we offer services to fit client needs, both today and into the future.
