Senior pharmaceutical lawyer Liam McIlveen has joined our expanding life sciences division after a career as an in-house lawyer with AstraZeneca spanning more than 25 years.
Liam has a huge amount of experience in life sciences transactions, IP licences, collaborations, product disposals and acquisitions, M&A projects and other commercial and R&D deals. He will be based in Cheshire, at the Alderley Park BioHub.
Liam will be applying the skills he has developed during his long career in pharmaceuticals to the needs of ambitious small and mid-sized firms in the industry.
His background as in-house counsel for a global pharmaceuticals business gives him an excellent commercial perspective on the kinds of legal and compliance issues that will be invaluable to medtech and biotech companies, including those looking to grow by acquisition, partnering or licensing.
Liam is looking forward to being part of a specialist team and believes the depth of knowledge of our lawyers and our fixed fee model make us an excellent fit for innovative biotech firms that need targeted legal input and budget certainty to support their research and growth.
