Today’s life sciences environment is experiencing a slow but steady rebound. Just as we’ve learned in research labs, building blocks from the survival gene to the social and protective genes, are the critical factors of adaptability and resilience, essential to a company’s survival.
Dynamic market changes demand new approaches to long and short-term financial strategies, fresh perspective on licensing and collaborations and risk management strategies to sustain both early and established life sciences companies.
Foley & Lardner along with our event partners, BioMed Realty Trust and Berkley Life Sciences present, “Winning Genes: How to Create, Grow and Sustain a Successful Life Sciences Company”. During this half-day conference, financial advisors, industry leaders and legal counsel will provide insight on critical business and legal issues during the following interactive panels:
- Post-Recession Life Sciences: Achieving the Successful Exit in the Market Resurgence
