The Dispute Resolution Challenge

An established US biotechnology company and a US research institute faced a dispute resolution over the commercial interpretation of a 10+ year-old licensing agreement with regard to the applicability of royalty payments to certain product sales. PharmaVentures supported the law firm representing the biotechnology company with its life sciences value analysis expertise.

The Solution

The consultants assessed the shift in deal value and the surrounding conditions through the long-term alliance and developed an expert report that helped to facilitate an early settlement on terms faired highly favourable to the biotechnology company.
