Helping your life sciences startup succeed

For life sciences entrepreneurs on a mission to improve health through innovation, McDermott has created the Life Sciences Entrepreneurs Acceleration Program (LEAP). LEAP brings the right combination of people, skills and leadership to bear when you need it, helping aggressively grow your business and master your legal needs.

As an early-stage life sciences company, you face new legal and business challenges daily. We provide high-potential organizations with top-quality legal services during the earliest stages of corporate development, and help ease the cost of these services through engagement incentives in the form of deferred fees, discounts and fixed-fee arrangements.

Candidates for LEAP are sponsored by a McDermott partner and evaluated on the quality of their business plan, the ability of the company to meet well-defined milestones, current levels of investment (or the likelihood of obtaining venture-backed financing), and clearance of a business and legal conflict evaluation.

Learn how McDermott can help you go further.
