Intellectual property (IP) is a key component of the life sciences, one of the most dynamic and innovative fields of technology
today. IP can be used for various reasons, such as branding and marketing, as well as to protect assets that give a competitive
advantage. The preventative rationale underlies IP systems around the world, perhaps also reflecting an intuition that IP holders
deserve exclusive rights against free riders who would rather take others’ ideas than create their own.
Under the standard vision, which is reflected in the various codes of professional responsibility governing
lawyers, the lawyer is a “neutral partisan” for his or her client: “neutral” in that he does not let his moral
values affect his actions on behalf of his client; “partisan” in that she does whatever she can within the
limits of the law to advance her client’s stated interests. We believe that a lawyer’s success depends both
on his internal structure, virtue, and the moral principles he or she abides by, as well as the external
environment and circumstances encountered in his or her activity. The lawyer must contribute to the public
good but become a fierce advocate when needed.
