Faber Law Group

Website

At Faber, most of our professionals have held full-time positions with life science startups. Several of our attorneys were themselves entrepreneurs who successfully led new ventures to market. Others have focused their careers on commercializing university research. Many have handled discovery and development stage licensing, as well as spin-out transactions, while working inside the legal departments of major pharmaceutical firms.

We leverage this experience for you, to structure a Newco that enables lab-based discoveries to realize their potential, while protecting the interests of all stakeholders.

Outside GC

On Demand Outside General Legal Counsel Services

Website

We created the fractionalized general counsel services model almost 20 years ago, and we’ve been helping our clients with negotiating and drafting commercial contracts ever since. Nearly all of our clients use a traditional large firm for matters such as capital raising, and exit of the business, but they use us instead for much of their day to day work, because we’re fast, practical and efficient – we help accelerate getting deals done without over-lawyering the process. 

OutsideGC is a partner-only team of senior business lawyers with substantial in-house experience who act as part-time in-house counsel to our clients on an “on demand” basis at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time in-house lawyer or relying exclusively on law firm counsel. Our hourly rate in 2020 for all attorneys in the New England area is $285. For companies with no in-house legal staff, we serve as the as-needed general counsel, handling much of the company’s day-to-day legal work ourselves and helping to manage and oversee the legal services provided by outside counsel. For larger companies, we provide on-demand overflow support to help get through spikes in work and keep fixed costs down.
