Wisconsin Lawyer

Below is an excerpt:

“The biotech business world that’s burgeoning in Wisconsin is the end result of a lot of work by a lot of different individuals over the last two decades,” says Jean Baker, partner at Quarles & Brady, Milwaukee. “To have a vibrant biotech business environment, you need people who are qualified to work and lead in this industry as well as legal resources and venture funding. A lot of biotech innovation is derived from our different educational resources and research institutions in the area, including the University of Wisconsin, Medical College of Wisconsin, Marquette University, and the Blood Center of Wisconsin. All of these entities spin out technologies that are capable of starting small businesses.”
