“Mr. Gollaher is smart and efficient.”
“He tends to be more resourceful than my other attorneys.”     


Merton G. Gollaher combines life-science experience with a talent for deal-making to help health care and technology clients compete in ever-changing markets. Trained as a chemist and with years of research experience as a molecular geneticist, Mr. Gollaher utilizes strong analytical thinking to resolve his client’s concerns and help build new affiliations, structure novel delivery networks, and nurture promising startups reshaping how health care is delivered.

Chambers USA described Mr. Gollaher as having a reputation for finding “creative solutions to complex problems.” He puts those skills to work specializing in business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, affiliations and strategic alliances, financings, and joint ventures, as well as licensing and collaboration arrangements and other technology-transfer matters. He also devotes a significant portion of his practice to cultivating and counseling emerging growth companies spun out of universities and early-, mid-, and late-stage ventures in the biotechnology, life sciences, medical device, and health care IT industries.
