The Life Sciences are the technology frontier of the new century and represent a new era of innovation, opportunity and discovery. As leading legal practicioners in this arena, Nicholas Weston Biotech and Tech Lawyers brings decades of experience in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and Health Care fields to both established and start-up life sciences ventures.
