Leveraging IP in Strategic Alliances
Life sciences companies are increasingly relying on strategic alliances as a means of financing research and development, validating technology, expanding product pipelines, and commercializing products. We offer a solid understanding of your patent portfolio, and emphasize the significance of IP as an essential driver in your deals. Given our breadth of experience and historic deal data, we counsel you not only on strictly legal issues, but can provide you with deal comparables and advice on the various business aspects of these transactions. We also work with you to sort through the myriad of deal structures and find the most appropriate solution, while negotiating the most favorable terms for your company.
