As a result, life sciences companies require significant legal expertise in the fields of intellectual property, FDA regulations, marketing compliance, licensing and collaborations, venture capital financings, public offerings, mergers and acquisitions, and commercial agreements unique to the industry, such as biologic and pharmaceutical manufacturing, supply, distribution, and co-promotion agreements. Biotechnology lawyers must be experts in one or more of these fields and be able to work collaboratively with legal experts in related fields.
