The Life Sciences Executive Network

Over the past 20 years, we have concentrated our practice to predominantly serve senior corporate executives and owners of private companies. One of our key areas of focus is supporting the life sciences industry. We serve leaders of emerging biotechnology, medical device, and pharmaceutical firms and their executives in making financial decisions.

Because of our in-depth understanding of this industry, we can advise highly compensated employees with equity ownership, concentrated or restricted stock, deferred compensation and more. Our team is ready with ideas, information and strategies to help C-level executives and their companies move forward. We are a resource for the leaders of these companies through quarterly lunch briefings and peer-to-peer breakfasts, which we sponsor.

As partners of Life Sciences Pennsylvania and members of The Pennsylvania Biotechnology Association, our team also hosts regular educational briefings, conference calls, and webinars to help keep our life sciences clients informed of what is occurring in the marketplace. We provide access to quality, institutional research on the industry to help clients stay abreast of relevant themes and issues affecting their companies. Our goal is to be a resource to this industry, providing insightful information on trends and relevant issues.
