Mentoring Services Provided:

“I represent companies in all the above referenced matters, including technology/intellectual property, patent/technology licensing, multi-party collaboration agreements and the overall protection, commercialization and use of clients’ intellectual property rights. I specialize in research matters, including clinical trial agreements, material transfer agreements, bioscience collaboration agreements, sponsored research with universities, and other research issues. As mentioned above, I also work with these companies on corporate matters, such as company formation and the governance of those entities.

I provide a no-charge consultation of approximately one hour for each bio company I mentor. This can be used for general discussion, but not for review of specific contracts.”
