Lisa Haile, the co-chair of DLA Piper’s Global Life Sciences sector, said, “Lauren has a deep understanding of technology and life sciences transactions and emerging growth companies. Talented practitioners like her are in increasing demand due to the resurgence in funding for biotech, pharma and medical device companies on the heels of several high-profile IPO exits and M&A deals.”

Murdza joins the firm from Morgan Lewis. She follows the addition of Fahd Riaz, who recently joined the firm as a partner in Philadelphia.

Carl Bucholz, the managing partner of the Philadelphia office, said, “With the additions of Lauren and Fahd, we are continuing to build a preeminent corporate practice in Philadelphia with the ability to meet the transactional needs of life sciences companies across the country. They bring diverse and sophisticated skill sets that will complement our office’s collaborative approach to serving clients across sectors and regions.”

In February, DLA Piper added new partners.

Murdza is also the president of the Benjamin Franklin American Inn of Court, a local mentorship program. She has previously served as its secretary. Additionally, she is a member of the American Bar association, the American Intellectual Property Law Association, and the Philadelphia Intellectual Property Law Association.

Saxby Chambliss joined the firm in January.

Murdza earned her B.S. from Loyola College in Maryland, and her law degree from Villanova University School of Law.
