Kaye Scholer has been shortlisted 16 times in 15 categories for the second annual LMG Life Sciences Awards, which honor the very best life sciences practitioners and firms over the last 12 months from the United States, Canada, and Europe.

We are also one of eight firms shortlisted for Life Cycle Firm of the Year, which is given to the law firm that best advises on the full range of issues life sciences clients face. We generated more nominations in the US categories than any other law firm in the space.
