Life Sciences


Our attorneys understand the unique business and complex legal concerns of pharmaceutical companies. Today our attorneys operate across multiple disciplines to counsel Life Sciences companies through every stage of the product lifecycle. 

Through our attorneys' technical undergraduate degrees and hands-on experience, Porzio attorneys are knowledgeable in numerous Life Sciences fields, including Nobel Prize-winning chemical, biochemical, biotechnology, and medical device innovations. We assist clients in such areas as patent infringement, Inter Partes Reviews (IPRs), patent prosecution, and complex business litigation at the trial, appellate and agency levels. When the business plan of a life sciences company involves direct marketing of the new compound, drug or device, our trademark lawyers assist in choosing and registering the name under which the substance or device will be marketed. Moreover, for more than 30 years, we have defended the Life Sciences industry’s leaders in product liability lawsuits, including individual lawsuits, class actions and consolidated mass torts. We counsel start-ups on manufacturing best practices, and conduct gap analyses of distribution license status of existing or newly acquired businesses. Multi-national clients receive guidance on cross-border reporting obligations. 

Our attorneys have served in-house as members of promotional review teams, particularly during U.S. and international product launches. We understand the real-world challenges facing Life Sciences companies.
