Client Groups

Companies Developing and Commercializing Pharmaceuticals

At Faber, our integrated team of lawyers and contracts specialists have helped our clients launch hundreds of clinical trials, and collectively they’ve worked on over 10,000 CTAs.


Effective preparation, negotiation and deployment of service agreements for pre-clinical laboratory services, formulation and development, and cGMP manufacturing of drug substance and drug product for clinical and/or commercial use requires experienced legal counsel that understands the industry-specific drivers of a complex supply chain.
We have a large team working in this practice, including many lawyers who have been executives or in-house legal counsel for fast-growing technology companies. So we understand how a contract’s fine points can affect a company’s operations and what it takes to successfully conclude these agreements.

Our process is unique among law firms

Experienced contract specialists work alongside attorneys steeped in the business side of life sciences. Prior to joining our firm, team members have held full-time positions with hospitals, biotech and pharmaceutical companies, and contract research organizations (CROs). Collectively, they have worked on tens of thousands of clinical trial agreements worldwide.
