Attorneys in Calfee's Corporate and Finance, Intellectual Property, Litigation, Government Relations and Legislation, and numerous other practice groups have significant experience helping Medical Device, Pharmaceutical, and Life Science clients attain their desired business and legal goals. 

Corporate and Finance

Additionally, Calfee attorneys negotiate product development, contract manufacturing, and sales and distribution agreements that enable clients to create their products and bring them to market. We also assist early-stage companies in equity raises and other financings.

Intellectual Property

Calfee attorneys represent companies in this sector from early-phase start-ups and research institutions all the way to some of the world’s largest medical device and pharmaceutical companies. Calfee’s attorneys have vast experience in developing patent portfolios and clearing products in patent mapping/freedom-to-operate studies. 

We represent our medical device, pharmaceutical, and life science clients in federal court for patent enforcement/defense and before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. We also assist clients with the purchase and sale of companies and intellectual property assets in this space.

Government Relations and Legislation

Calfee furthers their representation of Calfee's medical device, pharmaceutical, and life science industry clients before the General Assembly and regulatory bodies that impact their business operation in Ohio. Calfee ensures that elected officials understand the complex issues facing this industry, and we advocate on clients' behalf to ensure that their business climate is one in which they can operate with limited regulatory burdens.
