"We are excited to welcome Dave to the life sciences practice team and know his experience and strong network will be an asset to our growing firm.

Cannell will be based out of Cumberland's life sciences office in New Jersey. The company acquired the life sciences unit of New Jersey-based Mindlance in November.
