Launching a drug development company with novel technology from academia
Our corporate group has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs at this stage to help them optimally and efficiently select and form the appropriate legal entity
At Faber, we have an extensive practice devoted to collaborations between industry and academic institutions. Our 2,000+ clients have included public and venture-backed companies, investors, academic researchers and entrepreneurs, foundations and other not-for-profit entities, and some of the most prestigious universities in the U.S. and Europe.
We regularly work with startups seeking to in-license their core technology, as well as more established companies looking for complementary discovery and development expertise. We have helped academic institutions negotiate intellectual property licenses, organize consortiums and optimize their investments in companies that are further developing technology invented in the institutions’ labs.
We recognize that the cultures of these institutions are unique, leading to profoundly different approaches to contracting. And we know how to navigate the negotiation in order to get the job done efficiently, without sacrificing important details. Based on our significant market knowledge, we can advise you on prioritizing goals in negotiations and efficiently finding common ground.
