Life Sciences

Life Sciences is a truly unique business that requires outside counsel with specific expertise focused on the Life Sciences. In Life Sciences, it matters if lawyers have educational and/or industry experience in Life Sciences, and it matters if lawyers have served as in-house counsel at Life Sciences companies. Most importantly, outside counsel must share their Life Sciences clients’ passionate interest in growing a business, in developing and delivering products that solve complex health care conditions, and bringing business, law, and science closer together.

At Gordon & Rees, our Life Sciences lawyers provide clients with all of these essential requirements. We understand that the business of Life Sciences is based on constant pioneering, and the lawyers that help guide Life Sciences companies must also have a pioneering spirit in handling new legal challenges, creating new legal solutions, and delivering new value in their legal services.

Unique Practice Leadership

Gordon & Rees’ Life Sciences practice is chaired by Brian Mooney who has substantial expertise in representing Life Sciences clients, particularly in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. A number of other attorneys in the Group represent Life Sciences clients, including having done so as former in house counsel for Life Sciences companies.

Our Life Sciences attorneys cost-effectively serve as the one-stop-shop for all the legal services needed by Life Sciences companies. They know the importance of being responsive, reliable, and committed to their clients, and they know what their clients want - value, solutions, and results.
