Case Study: Synageva Biopharma: Keeping Pace with a Swiftly-Moving Start-Up

Every second counts. That’s the mantra that Synageva Biopharma lives by—and a mantra we quickly embraced as our own when the then-start-up hired us to expedite contract reviews.

At the time, Synageva had no in-house legal department and was in urgent need of quick, effective confidentiality agreements for two of its earliest studies. Since Contracts Associates works on a case-by-case basis and our attorneys have the resources and drive to work accurately and quickly, we were an ideal fit.

Our attorneys threw themselves into the work, turning the contracts around in an extremely tight timeframe that helped ensure project success. We handled any and all escalations from clinical trial agreements with Memorial Sloan Kettering, the CRO.

Synageva ultimately credited us with a crucial role in bringing two of their drugs to market.

Since then, Synageva has grown substantially and now has a robust in-house legal department. Even still, our partnership is still going strong. We’ve proven that we can keep pace to produce consistently meticulous work, and we’re proud to continue working closely with Synageva’s clinical teams to meet needs and further their life-changing research.

Every seconds counts—and at Contracts Associates, we don’t waste a single one.
