Foley’s corporate attorneys who focus in life sciences understand the unique requirements of the industry. Whether you are a start-up or a mature commercial business, we provide you with comprehensive strategic and transactional advice and capabilities that are specifically tailored to your unique needs. Our experience spans complex transactions involving life sciences companies, both domestic and foreign, including:

  • Licensing and collaboration agreements
  • Pre-clinical and clinical research counseling
  • Manufacturing and distribution agreements
  • Mergers, acquisitions, and public offerings
  • Public and private debt and equity financings
  • Joint ventures
  • International commerce

Our goals and activities are aligned with yours: to deploy our resources and experience to enable you to continue to innovate, secure reliable funding, achieve financial objectives, and deliver valuable products to market. We seek to ensure that your transactions are not only financially and legally sound but also reflect prevailing commercial and financial terms to help you stay competitive in an evolving marketplace.

Recognizing that clients need more than legal insight to succeed, in June 2011, the firm launched Foley Ventures, a venture capital fund that invests exclusively in or with our clients. We are “putting our money where our mouth is” by taking an equity stake in our clients’ future prospects.
