About our Firm
Most of our lawyers and contracts specialists have in-house experience, and so they more completely appreciate the operational realities that our clients face. They apply this perspective to counseling clients and developing better solutions to the transactional opportunities and challenges our clients encounter.
Our professionals have played many roles in the biotech, biopharma, and pharmaceutical industries before they joined Faber. Some previously held positions held include:
Faber began as a small team of professionals, both lawyers and contracts specialists, who’d worked together in-house at a dynamic biopharmaceutical company.
They shared a vision to create a dynamic, diverse, independent law firm that would provide sophisticated, customized business counsel for life sciences clients and strive to provide a unique combination of “best-in-class” work product, advice, and service. And they committed to remember that professional employees do not exist to serve the firm; rather the firm exists to provide for its professional employees an optimized combination of financial reward, professional time commitment, working environment and culture, and intellectual challenge.
Nearly 20 years later, Faber has worked with over 2,000 clients, and employs over 50 professionals.
Our goal is to provide a workplace that is consciously inclusive, and focuses on understanding, appreciating, and celebrating the diverse backgrounds of our team. We believe that listening to and engaging with different ideas and perspectives allows us to have a better understanding and appreciation for the world around us, to create a work environment for employees that’s engaging and comfortable, and ultimately to provide better advice and service to our clients.
As part of our firm’s primary goals, we also actively participate in philanthropic and community engagement initiatives that aim to address important needs in our society – often focusing on unmet medical and healthcare needs in historically underserved populations, and often partnering with our clients to add leverage to the work they may be doing to provide research funding, support for patient education, and access to medicines.
We are committed to creating an environment where our employees feel valued and supported, so that they can be most effective when collaborating with colleagues and supporting clients

Our firm is deeply committed to engaging philanthropically, in a meaningful way and to a substantial degree, with the communities in which we live and work
Each year, Faber organizes several “Days of Service,” during which employees (and sometimes their families) perform volunteer work for organizations chosen for their social impact
Recognizing the ethical obligation that lawyers and law firms have to provide service to indigent clients and not-for-profit organizations, we increasingly handle matters on a pro bono basis that apply our professional skills, creativity and influence
