Innovation in drug discovery often starts in universities or with small enterprises. While the initial research and discovery are well within the purview of many university labs and small companies, advanced clinical development and commercialization are often well beyond the means of such entities. In order to bring drugs to market, smaller companies have to make enormous investments to build infrastructure (i.e. through public offerings), license their valuable pharmaceutical assets or simply sell the company to more established players who have the bandwidth for successful commercialization.
Patents provide exclusionary rights without which there is often insufficient barrier to competition to warrant investment. As a result, sophisticated investors and acquirers devote substantial resources to perform due diligence, which refers to research on financial analysis, clinical efficacy, human resource investigations and intellectual property, on patent assets they are considering for deal-making.
This webinar will take the attendees through the due diligence process through the eyes of a small company interested in making a transaction with its intellectual property. As such, this webinar will be appropriate for senior-level executives such as CEOs, CFOs, VPs of business and in-house counsel working at small to medium-sized pharma companies or law firms with corporate transaction teams.
