This year’s Life Sciences & Law Current Issues features legal issues companies may face as they move through the life cycle for a life sciences and biotech company in Canada. From early- to mid-stage and on toward maturity, we look at intellectual property trends including the implications of recent court decisions (example, Prometheus or Amazon.com) to data protection strategies and a recent mergers and acquisition overview. The issue highlights both Canadian matters and puts your activities in a global context by offering comparisons on legal trends across Canada, the U.S. and the EU as well as highlights from our Moscow office on IP trends in Russia and the CIS.
