Practical Law Company Identifies WilmerHale As A Leading Life Science Firm


The PLC Cross-border Life Sciences Handbook 2005/06 identified WilmerHale as one of only two “leading” law firms in the United States in both the Commercial/Partnering and Corporate categories, while also recognizing the firm’s Intellectual Property capabilities in the US and the UK.

In addition to the firm rankings, the handbook designated five individual WilmerHale partners as go-to lawyers in their respective areas of practice. The practice area and rankings of each lawyer are as follows: Alfred C. Server, M.D., Ph.D. (USA Commercial/Partnering: Leading); Steven D. Singer (USA Commercial/Partnering: Leading; Corporate: Highly Recommended); David E. Redlick (USA Corporate: Highly Recommended); William F. Lee (USA Intellectual Property: Highly Recommended); and Robert Barry (UK Intellectual Property: Recommended). Lawyers and law firms recognized by PLC are classified into one of the following rankings, in order of prestige, “Leading,” “Highly Recommended,” or “Recommended.”

WilmerHale is the only firm in the US with multiple lawyers ranked as “leading” in the Commercial/Partnering category, consistent with the firm’s acknowledged preeminence in this practice area. WilmerHale offers exceptional capabilities in all matters critical to the success of life sciences companies—from strategic collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, public offerings and venture financings to patent prosecution, intellectual property litigation, product liability litigation and regulatory advice.
