It’s an exciting but edgy time to be handling intellectual property for a biotechnology enterprise. These companies are searching for cures for cancer, vaccines to eradicate disease, and ways to help relieve the suffering caused by AIDS. As a scientific and business proposition, it doesn’t get much more exciting. These companies are also edgy, in both a legal and financial sense. They’re exploring legal frontiers by patenting gene sequences that critics think should be outside the bounds. Some of them teeter on the financial edge, a deal or a payday away from collapse. And the biotech sector has not escaped the stock market’s recent wrath. Even so, for lawyers who like risk — and they do exist — biotech is a great place to be.
