Deborah L. Spranger, co-chair of the firm’s Life Sciences Practice, was interviewed for an article discussing the firm’s decision to focus on the growth of its Life Sciences Practice, with the addition of 12 lawyers and patent agents to its ranks in the past year. She highlights that Saul Ewing is strategically positioned to be a player in this competitive arena because of its footprint in three of the five largest markets for the industry, as well as the lawyers’ backgrounds in the business and finance world. In addition Spranger said, “life sciences isn’t going away. It’s an industry that we think will continue to produce business opportunities.”

Spranger notes that the firm has already seen a distinct change in the number and diversity of its life sciences clients already, including a harmony with the firm’s higher education university clients, but expects to see true synergies in 2014. She concluded by saying, “it is no longer good enough to do good legal work. Clients want you to help them make connections as well.”
