Bio/pharma companies negotiate and enter into a multiplicity of contracts as a key part of company establishment and growth. One or more IP terms are included in nearly every contract, whether confidentiality, material transfer, research, vendor, manufacturing/supply, or partnering/collaboration agreements, just to name a few.

This panel of highly experienced contract negotiators will discuss the nuts-and-bolts of drafting IP terms for a variety of bio/pharma company contracts and provide practical negotiation guidance: defining the goal of the contract and how IP fits in; understanding the desired outcome for the contract and how the parties will interact to achieve that outcome after the contract is signed; identifying what your company wants/needs with respect to IP and how that compares with what the contracting party wants/needs; mitigating IP risks if impossible to negotiate IP terms you want; knowing how much you can give up and how much you must retain in the IP terms.
