I'm Phil Crowley, an attorney focusing on providing legal assistance in key areas of the life sciences and other technology businesses, from entity formation to licensing and strategic collaborations. With offices in Morristown, New Jersey and Manhattan, we serve entrepreneurs and innovators employed in medicine, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and other technology fields in New Jersey, New York and nationwide. My practice is based on years of experience as a lawyer, an in-house counselor and advisor, a Trustee of a major technology university and an Angel Investor.
