Davis LLP Welcomes New Regulatory and Intellectual Property Partner

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 6, 2013) - Davis LLP further strengthens its capabilities in intellectual property and the life sciences with the addition of Sara Zborovski as a partner in the firm's Toronto office. Sara is a regulatory and IP lawyer to the life science industry. Her addition to the firm meets a strategic client need and growing demand for market-leading expertise.

Rob Seidel, Q.C., Firm Managing Partner of Davis LLP, said adding Sara to the Davis team will bring further depth and breadth to the growing firm. "Our clients will benefit from Sara's background and extensive experience acting on matters related to Health Canada issues, as well as her understanding of the regulatory and commercial environment in which they operate."

Sara assists companies in navigating the regulatory landscape imposed by the Food and Drugs Act, its related regulations and the intersection of intellectual property and these laws. She advocates before all branches of Health Canada on behalf of the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, natural health product, nutraceutical, medical device and cosmetic industries.

Sara works with clients to get products from idea to market, providing strategic advice on approval and marketing strategies and intellectual property issues, and managing global product portfolios. Sara also has particular experience with Federal Court review of regulatory decisions, lobbying, and in navigating Canada's Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) Regulations.

Sara has drafted and presented submissions to Health Canada, the Competition Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission and the Food and Drug Administration in Washington, D.C., as well as to the Federal and Ontario Courts. She is a regular contributor to a number of publications and is an active blogger.

The firm recently bolstered its IP and life sciences capabilities with the addition of Andy Radhakant, Julian Worsley and Neil Fineberg. Sara's addition to the firm reinforces its position as a market leader in meeting our clients' needs in these areas.
