Your team tirelessly negotiates a deal over many months. Both CEOs have high expectations for the value this alliance will create. The deal you struck covered all the bases and included your preferred terms and conditions. But, early in implementation, issues arise. The contract did not contemplate or provide for those issues, and now the collaboration is faltering. How do you navigate the white space between what the contract contemplates and the real-world developments in the alliance?

As ASAP kicks off a new partnership with the Licensing Executives Society (LES), this session presents a dialogue featuring insights and experience from a distinguished intellectual property transactional attorney and an accomplished alliance executive and pharmaceutical industry leader as they explore these issues, discuss strategies for resolution, and share best practices in alliance management. This session will:

  • Enable you to better anticipate problems, plan solutions, and devise comprehensive transactional strategies before the deal is signed
  • Provide insight and expert guidance in navigating contract white space, alliance governance, and issue resolution
