Life Sciences

Succeeding in the life sciences industry is as much about strategy and execution as it is about research and development. And with the breakneck pace of technology disrupting industries on a global scale, Goodwin’s depth of experience not only in the life sciences space, but also in collaboration with our technology, healthcare, real estate and private equity lawyers, makes our team exceptionally suited to address whatever the future brings. We partner with clients to embrace the promise and potential of innovation to make a profound and lasting impact.

Lawyers in our life sciences practice are deeply experienced in corporate governance, financing and M&A transactions, collaborations and licensing, regulatory matters, and intellectual property law. We understand the challenges of securing funding, safeguarding intellectual property, establishing partnerships, bringing new products to market, opening up new revenue streams, and protecting existing product lines. As part of our interdisciplinary approach, we collaborate with lawyers in our patent litigation, products litigation, privacy and cybersecurity, employment and tax practices to protect client interests and to advocate on their behalf.

As the demand for advancements in the life sciences industry grows, so does the need for scalable and responsive real estate to support biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device companies. In partnership with our Real Estate team, we pioneered Goodwin’s new PropSci practice, a first-of-its-kind group that advises companies and investors within the life sciences sector on their real estate challenges.

With a full service team of highly experienced lawyers resident in key life sciences hubs, our team helps clients find the strategic paths that foster growth and minimize risk across all phases of the corporate life cycle. Motivated by the knowledge that the work that we do with you is improving people’s lives, we serve as an extension of your team so you can focus on your core business.
