 In-House Impact: Life Sciences is the only forum dedicated to life sciences legal leaders accelerating their journey (and that of their teams) from legal specialist to strategic business partner. 

It is a unique opportunity to gather with your peers in pharma, biotech and medical device in-house legal teams to collaborate and carve out a new narrative for the legal function – from enterprise defenders to integrated enablers of innovation.  

Uncover how the most high-impact legal teams are embedding innovation, collaboration and creativity into their DNA, sharing exactly how that’s allowing them to move from minimizing risk to maximizing opportunity in operating as true partners to their rapidly growing scientific business and helping them get better drugs to patients faster. 

Secure your place at this unique open forum to listen to and be involved in discussions that are transforming the future of legal leadership and service delivery in life sciences businesses.

'Most of us have access to a small number of fellow GCs we can reach out to for advice, but very few of us are part of a wider industry-specific community of GCs able to discuss  and debate the future of our legal function. This is why I’m excited to be a part of In-House Impact: Life Sciences, to enhance and facilitate  those invaluable relationships.'

Jonathan Biller, Chief Legal Officer, Agios Pharmaceuticals 

'Geared specifically towards General Counsels and their inhouse teams within Life Sciences, In-House Impact looks set  to occupy a unique and invaluable space in the industry.'
