Case Study: Start-Up Company

Synageva Biopharma became a client at a time when the company had only 18 employees and no in-house legal department.  Contracts Associates was brought on board for the sole purpose of handling clinical trial agreement escalations from Synageva’s CRO on the company’s first two studies. Synageva now has a robust Legal department and Contracts Associates continues to provide legal reviews of the company’s clinical trial agreements, informed consents and local, ex-US services agreements. We work closely with the clinical teams, across programs, to provide prompt responses to CRO requests and handle the inevitable queries regarding best practices, in the US and around the world.
