Following BioInnovate, in 2012 Kevin moved briefly to In-house Legal Services for Alere International before adopting the role of Consultant Solicitor for Flynn O'Driscoll. From 2013 onwards, Kevin concentrated on developing a bespoke legal practice for the life science sector. In 2014, he returned to Galway to practice with M.G. Ryan Solicitors where he set up MGR Life Science (http://www.mgrlifescience.com/). Kevin now provides legal advice to over 35 life science companies.
“Understanding the science, technology and commercialisation pathway for a product is a key part of negotiating and drafting commercial agreements. Put simply, the fellowship has enabled me to realise my ambition of creating a niche life science service and work in my area of interest. As a result of the fellowship I gained first-hand experience of the I.P., compliance, ethical, regulatory and funding challenges which face medical device companies. Now acting for a broad spectrum of researchers, manufacturers, distributors and third-party service providers, I continue to draw on those experiences to predict and navigate legal risks for my clients”.
