Industry Collaborations

Overview

For many emerging companies in life science, healthcare IT, medical devices or engineering technology, accelerating value creation by collaborating with other industry players is an important business strategy. These collaborations are challenging to structure. You need legal counsel – who thoroughly understand your intellectual property and the technology behind your R&D programs; who are business-savvy and can help create agreements that achieve your financial and scientific goals; and who can represent your interests in situations where your counterparty may be much larger and have greater negotiating leverage than you.

Experience

At Faber,  we’ve worked with 800+ clients in life science, healthcare IT, medical devices and engineering technology. We have over a dozen lawyers focusing their practices on handling these kinds of transactions, and our life science practice is among the deepest and most comprehensive in the country. As a result, whatever your opportunity, we’re likely to have a senior lawyer who has recently handled comparable deals involving similar technology, industry segments and client situations … very often with the same counterparties you’re talking to.

Further, many of our lawyers have worked in-house in your industry, giving them practical insight into how a contract will play out in the real world. Several of our professionals have been entrepreneurs and led venture-backed companies.

Our transactional experience includes:

  • Licensing for compounds, technology platforms, processes, know-how and software
  • Selective licensing by application or territory
  • Evaluation and option arrangements
  • Alliances for discovery, co-development and/or co-commercialization
  • Manufacturing and process/formulation collaborations
  • Promotion and distribution agreements
