Preferred CROs


Atlas has created preferred provider agreements with a handful of CROs (both pre-clinical and clinical stage) for the entire Atlas portfolio of companies to take advantage of.

Some of the benefits of these partnerships include:

  • Dedicated single point of contact at the CRO - Better customer service and attention
  • Pre-negotiated MSAs to accelerate contracting and reduce legal spend
  • Favorable rates & discounts
  • Lunch & Learns, webinars and access to experts in valuable areas

Legal Note: All MSAs have been negotiated on behalf of Atlas Venture by Hutchinson, PLLC with our portfolio companies' best interest in mind. This is a starting point for MSA negotiations and will reduce some time and legal costs. Further negotiation and your own company's circumstances need to be taken into account. Should you want to engage Hutchinson, PLLC to further negotiate on your behalf, please contact C. Lucas Beal at
