Board Counseling

In our highly regulated climate, companies in the life sciences industry and their boards are under the microscope.  Porzio attorneys have counseled boards of directors of public and private companies as both in-house and outside counsel.  As part of our team , former judges bring real-world experiences in scrutinizing board actions.  Our attorneys are intimately familiar with life sciences industry issues, laws, and the practical concerns facing directors. 

Porzio attorneys counsel life sciences boards on legal risks associated with marketing FDA-regulated products.  We recognize the importance of aggressive marketing during the limited patent life of your products and the need to realize your business goals.  We balance the risk inherent in such marketing against these goals.  We regularly advise companies and their boards on how to steer clear of government investigations, product liability lawsuits, and negative media coverage.  We advise at Board of Directors meetings, addressing the importance of a vigorous corporate compliance program to assure company-wide compliance with relevant laws, regulations, and industry-standards.
