Toolkit

Let us simplify your paperwork

Our BIO.LAW document library will help you generate and prepare important legal documents for your business in no time. Simply choose and click on the right legal form below - all of our forms are free and 'ready-to-sign'. We will keep adding more forms, and are constantly improving and updating our existing forms to keep up with the development in the law and in what's 'standard' in the market - so, check back often!

1. Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) [English]

Before you share any confidential information (e.g., relating to your company's research ideas or inventions) with a third party, it is vital to conclude a confidential disclosure agreement (CDA). To establish and start using your own CDA, click here.

2. Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) [German]

This is the very same confidential disclosure agreement as above - but this time, it's in German (just in case you need to use local language). By the way, did you know all of our templates have been adapted to comply with the new EU trade secrets directive?

3. Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) [English]

When you transfer tangible research materials (such as reagents, cell lines, or plasmids) to another third party, you will need define what the recipient may (and may not) do with such materials - that's what an MTA is for. Click here to start using yours.

4. Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) [German]

Here is our MTA template again - this time, in German language. You never know when you'll need to be able to pull out an MTA draft at short notice, so why not download our template right away? 

5. Founder IP Assignment Agreement (IPAA) [English]

If you are a start-up, you should make sure to enter into written IP assignments with each of your founders to transfer ownership of all past (and future) IP to the company. Click here to download our Founder IPAA template and customize it to your needs.

6. Founder IP Assignment Agreement (IPAA) [German]

And here is our IPAA template in German. If your business is a German limited liability company (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung - GmbH), you may actually prefer to use the German language version over the English one.

7. Due Diligence Checklist

Structuring your due diligence process is key, no matter whether you are on the buy or sell-side - yet, many life sciences companies underestimate the time and effort. Click here to see our sample due diligence checklist for life sciences companies.
