Life Sciences & Digital Health:

Pillsbury operates at the intersection of science, business and law, with industry-specific experience that dates back to the inaugural biotech IPO and the first nanotechnology patent.

Real Estate & Construction:

Pillsbury has a unique history of deal-making throughout the United States, with leading real estate practices for more than 50 years on the East and West coasts. Because of its size and geographic reach, the firm’s real estate practice group is one of the few national practices capable of handling the full range of assignments, from multi-jurisdictional portfolio transactions to single asset deals in local markets. Lawyers on the construction counseling and dispute resolution team have been hailed by Chambers as part of the “preeminent practice of its kind in the United States.” They’ve earned this distinction by working on some of the world’s most complex construction projects: the Panama Canal extension, major infrastructure cases around the globe and two of the largest hospital disputes in history, as well as commercial, industrial and residential projects worldwide.
