Joint Ventures & Strategic Alliances

Life Sciences Law represents public and private pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies in all forms of licensing, joint venture and strategic alliance agreements. Our experience also includes structuring collaborations that address the development, manufacturing and marketing of drugs and related products.
