Life Sciences

  • [We represented one of the country’s largest publicly traded life sciences REITs in the acquisition and leasing of laboratory and office properties throughout the country, including most recently in Kendall Square, Cambridge. Our work for this client has included negotiating leases for lab and office space, representing it in over $151m of property acquisitions, and advising it on zoning and permitting.]
  • As Lexington Town Counsel, we helped the Town negotiate a Tax Increment Financing Agreement with Shire Human Genetic Therapies and Patriot Partners Lexington to enable the redevelopment of the former Raytheon property on Route 2 for Shire’s world headquarters. The redevelopment included more than $300m in capital investments. The property was rezoned as part of this process, and it is currently used for biotechnology, manufacturing, research and office purposes.
  • We have represented several Cambridge life sciences companies in real estate matters, including leases for laboratory and office use, including Genocea Biosciences, AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Inspiration Biopharmaceuticals.
