"Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Transactions in the Current Economic Environment" (Client Presentation)

Small and mid-size pharmaceutical and biotech companies are facing a severe contraction in the availability of traditional financing sources. At the same time, major pharma and mature biotech players are looking to fill gaps in their product pipelines. In this seminar, our panelists discussed the state of the financing and M&A markets in this sector, innovative techniques for addressing current market challenges and some of the legal issues that arise in these transactions. Specific topics included:

  • Financing pharma/biotech companies in today's markets
  • Bridging the Value Gap: contingent value rights, options and other alternative transaction structures
  • Managing bankruptcy risks in M&A and licensing transactions
