Life Sciences and Health Care Venture Capital Investors

The life sciences and health care industry is advancing at record pace. Cell and gene therapies, AI, wearable devices, telemedicine and virtual care, are just a few examples of innovation.

Whether providing seed funding to startups, growth capital to early-stage companies, or financing buyouts, venture capital funding plays a critical role in sustaining the life sciences ecosystem.

Our global team of venture capital lawyers advise venture capital funds, life sciences companies with a captive venture fund, as well as universities and other academic research institutions. We provide multidisciplinary advice throughout the "venture capital lifecycle from company formation through fundraising and investments to eventual exit.

Regulation is simply a reality of doing business in this industry. Our venture capital lawyers regularly access our world-renowned global regulatory team to perform due diligence investigations of regulatory issues and risk factors, including the relevant approval pathway and reimbursement strategy for your product. We also serve as special regulatory counsel to issuers and underwriters in conjunction with initial public offerings and follow-on offerings.

Many of our team members have in-depth experience in industry and government, including at the FDA and other key regulatory agencies, and hold advance degrees in relevant disciplines.
