What kinds of lawyers do healthcare entrepreneurs need?

Early-stage healthcare entrepreneurs and startups typically need to work with at least two types of lawyers:

  2. Intellectual property lawyers - They help your company protect unique attributes like chemical compounds, technologies or other patentable processes.

In an attorney, a healthcare entrepreneur should look for someone who understands the startup world -- and who has done a predominant amount of their work with startup companies, said Jennifer Hill, a startup lawyer in New York City. "At the end of the day your goal as an attorney is to help bring this company to life," she said.
