Pepper Hamilton LLP

Pepper Hamilton LLP is a multi-practice law firm with more than 500 lawyers nationally. The firm provides corporate, litigation and regulatory legal services to leading businesses, governmental entities, nonprofit organizations and individuals throughout the nation and the world.

Lawyers in Pepper’s Boston office focus on corporate and securities, corporate restructuring and bankruptcy, tax, complex corporate and commercial litigation, patent litigation and other intellectual property matters. Our Boston lawyers serve clients in a variety of industries, including private equity and venture capital firms, businesses in the life sciences, high-tech companies, and organizations in the retail, service and manufacturing arenas. They include public companies, as well as emerging and entrepreneurial businesses.

We take a proactive approach to our representation of life sciences companies by organizing around client objectives and bringing together lawyers with a variety of skills and experience into a formal, interdisciplinary life sciences practice. This holistic approach enables us to provide comprehensive counseling to life sciences companies at every stage of their development as a company and every stage of the product life cycle, including discovery, development, manufacturing, marketing and sales. Our clients must navigate this pathway in a heavily regulated and constantly changing environment, which includes escalating business, financing and pricing pressures as well as the constant threat of government investigations, and commercial, patent and mass tort products liability litigation. Through our experience, we are able to assist clients at every step along the product life cycle.

Our team assists life sciences companies in every facet of their business needs, including:

  • capital raising, from venture capital to public offerings
  • licensing, collaboration and partnering arrangements
  • product acquisitions and dispositions
  • company exit transactions
  • intellectual property protection
  • compliance plans, SOPs, and training R&D, regulatory, marketing and sales in best practices and risk assessment and minimization strategies, other regulatory counseling
  • litigation with competitors and consumers, and government investigations and litigation.
