The Life Sciences group at Lowenstein Sandler represents a broad spectrum of life sciences companies, investors and investment banks in a wide range of complex legal matters. We have decades of industry experience. We know your business.

Our goal is to be a value-added part of your team by providing high-quality and efficient legal counsel. Our broad industry practice representing emerging companies, multinational publicly traded companies, venture funds, hedge funds, private equity firms and life science-focused investment banks gives us unique insight into industry dynamics and an unparalleled ability to develop creative solutions to our clients' complex legal issues. Because we represent participants in all aspects of the life sciences industry, we can frequently add significant value by leveraging our industry contacts for our clients' benefit.

We have extensive industry experience, including translating scientific research into robust patent portfolios; identifying and negotiating strategic partnerships and alliances; negotiating and drafting commercial and clinical development agreements; executing private and public financings and public offerings; advising in merger and acquisition transactions; and developing effective litigation strategies in actions involving securities fraud, product liability, mass torts, consumer fraud, false advertising, and commercial and intellectual property-related disputes. We bridge the gap between science and the law, communicating with clients in their own language and promoting a level of confidence that elevates us from ordinary service providers to trusted advisors.

Our Life Sciences group includes registered pharmacists; specialists with degrees or industry research experience in genetics, biochemistry, chemical engineering and material science; adjunct professors of law; and a former General Counsel to a number of private pharmaceutical companies. Several of our attorneys also serve as de facto Chief Intellectual Property Counsel to numerous life sciences companies. Our attorneys' professional backgrounds, legal experience and commitment to the industry ensure that our clients receive counsel from attorneys who not only understand their business but also share in their enthusiasm to innovate, develop and commercialize lifesaving products.
