Advising companies on transactions in the life sciences industry requires in-depth knowledge of the industry to be able to identify and resolve potential issues that may arise or regulations that surround these industry transactions. You need a team with both industry and corporate-specific competency, and we are that team.
Our global team includes lawyers who have served as in-house counsel at life science companies; have had careers in the life science industry prior to practicing law; or have degrees in the science, such as chemical engineering, biochemistry, biology, chemistry and other disciplines.
We, at Reed Smith provide the entire range of life sciences transactions services. We will advise you with respect to acquisitions, divestitures, licensing, joint ventures, strategic alliances, collaborations, co-promotion and other operational transactions.
Our lawyers combine knowledge of the industry, along with that of life science product development, commercialization and management requirements, regulatory demands, and litigation risks to represent; as well as their experience serving as general counsel for a large number of both public and private life science companies. We will be by your side through all phases of development - from start-up through development stage - and through all phases of commercialization - from product launch through life cycle management.
We have helped structure some of the industry's largest deals, and we are leaders in representing start-up, emerging growth and mid-market companies in all types of strategic and operational transactional matters - all around the globe, in both established and emerging markets.
Our lawyers have the breadth, depth and technical acumen to handle virtually any project, and the industry experience to do it cost effectively, efficiently and with the highest level of quality.
