Recognizing Fenwick’s resounding impact over the last year, Law360 has named our life sciences team a Practice Group of the Year for 2023. The honor acknowledges Fenwick’s deep expertise and formidable track record successfully guiding the world’s leading biopharma, medical device, diagnostic, and healthcare companies through growth-catalyzing fundraising, pivotal collaborations, industry-shaping mergers, and their highest-stakes disputes.

Law360 highlights Fenwick’s commitment to protecting innovations driving the industry forward, pointing to its long-standing partnership with Novo Nordisk and the team’s recent success in defending its patents for the diabetes drug Ozempic against multiple generic drugmakers. The team is also celebrated for representing DICE Therapeutics in its remarkable $2.4 billion acquisition by Eli Lilly and Company, marking another milestone in Fenwick’s history of facilitating startup-to-sale success stories in biopharma.
