About Me

LifeScience-Law specializes in the practice of “integrative law” in the biotechnology, medical device and healthcare industries. Entrepreneurial legal services are provided with a strategic focus on the whole business, combining regulatory, accounting, finance, tax, manufacturing, supply chain and international legal experience. Operational emphasis includes contract manufacturing and long-term operating agreements (co-development, license, distribution and supply agreements).  In addition to specialized operating agreements, services include general business advising, contracts, transactional support and outsourced general counsel services, including a two-year engagement serving as outsourced general counsel to a Fortune 500 healthcare company subsidiary.


In addition to being a CPA, Chris is also an alumnus of Tech Coast Angels, the largest angel network in the U.S. and the number one source of startup funding in Southern California.
