Tali advises clients in a broad array of industries and in all manner of business and technology related transactions, ranging from routine business needs for material transfer, consulting and services agreements, to international and complex transactions involving outsourcing of major business functions, complex patent licenses and assignments, research and development agreements with heavily negotiated intellectual property provisions, and high-value software licenses. She helps her clients accomplish their business objectives and requirements while managing their risks, all in a strategic manner.

Leveraging her prior experience as in-house corporate counsel for a large publicly traded biotech company, Tali understands and accommodates the variables that can impact a client’s deal. These include helping clients manage investor needs and expectations, keep legal costs low, accommodate various internal client functions and business units, and overcome negotiation impasses. Her clients benefit from her many years of practice and the creative thinking she brings to their business transactions.

Tali’s clients regularly engage her to represent them in major transactions that require a breadth and depth of knowledge and resources, such as those involving tax, privacy, and health care issues. Her clients also request her assistance in managing their day-to-day, high-volume work, such as reviewing confidentiality agreements, customer agreements, and terms and conditions.

She regularly negotiates and drafts agreements in both the life sciences industry (including agreements covering antibodies, bioinformatics, clinical trial, sponsored research, and contract manufacturing agreements), and the high-tech and medical device industry (such as patent and software licenses and website terms). Tali also represents both small and large companies in supply transactions, such as manufacturing, supply and distribution agreements, and agency or sales representative agreements. She also advises clients in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic, medical device, health care, and energy fields.
