Covington offers one of the largest and most comprehensive life sciences industry-focused practices in the world. Our clients, spanning all industry sectors and ranging from startup ventures to multinational corporations and trade associations, trust us with their most challenging business problems. They know that they can rely on Covington for practical, efficient solutions rooted in a sophisticated knowledge of their business that only comes from deep immersion in the industry and decades of dedicated service.

We advise clients throughout a product’s life cycle, going beyond the traditional legal services offered by other firms to facilitate efficient and effective research and development, ensure successful launch and commercialization, and maximize the product’s franchise. Our multi-disciplinary "life cycle management" approach enables us to quickly assimilate our clients’ regulatory, intellectual property and commercial goals, identify potential issues and develop creative and novel approaches to maximize value for our clients.

Our team includes more than a hundred lawyers who devote substantially all of their time to work on behalf of pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device clients. Many of our lawyers have previously served in leadership positions with the major industry regulatory bodies (including several high-ranking officials with the FDA), in-house with major manufacturers (including two former life sciences General Counsel), or within industry trade associations. Our broad background and depth of experience ensures that when clients come upon a problem that they have not seen before or anticipated, chances are that we have.
