She has a strong regulatory and transactional pharmaceutical practice, and extensive experience of patent licensing. Interviewees extol her 'deep industry knowledge and fast turnaround times.'"
- Cheryl Reicin "maintains a life sciences-heavy practice, advising on a broad range of transactional matters. Work highlights include representing BioMS Medical in its multimillion-dollar global agreement with Eli Lilly."
- Gabor Takach is "well-respected." He has "a strong IT practice, representing technology companies across the full spectrum of transactions, including IT outsourcing and hardware and software licensing."
- Daniel Logan "handles a full range of corporate matters, with a focus on outsourcing and technology licensing in the financial services and telecommunications sectors. Clients 'wouldn’t hesitate to use him again; he’s always available and knows how to balance the business and legal risks in an agreement.'"
The 250 individuals identified by IAM's research team received substantial feedback from private practitioners and their users in more than 20 key jurisdictions. The top-class lawyers were reported to combine an in-depth knowledge of the legal process with an understanding of their clients' businesses to develop strategies for fighting cases that leave their clients in the best position possible.
