LICENSING NEGOTIATION WORKSHOP
Intermediate Licensing Negotiation Workshop for Biotech Professionals
During this one day workshop, students will go through the legal aspects of licensing agreements, including mapping rights, the purpose behind key provisions, effective use of term sheets & memoranda of understanding, structures, strategies and deal termination.
The workshop is highly interactive using hypotheticals and mock negotiation. Broken down into segments, students will be introduced to a fact pattern, be provided with legal instruction and then will negotiate and report the results of their negotiations back to instructors and the group.
We’ll be working through the negotiation challenges and opportunities with respect to five core licensing terms:
- Defining and licensing the IP; Representations and Warranties
- Collaboration Governance and Diligence
- Royalty and other Commercial Structures
- Allocation of Liability and Indemnification
- Dispute Resolution and Termination
Students will emerge from this workshop with a take away toolkit, consisting of:
- an academic to biotech company in-license,
- a biotech to pharma license,
- sample clauses in the areas of royalty, indemnification, reps and warranties
- an option agreement, and more
Our program is appropriate for professional negotiators working in the life sciences. We have crafted fact patterns that factor in common scenarios and have taken care to address common licensing negotiation situations. This course is especially appropriate for mid-level associates and in-house counsel looking to expand their skills and dive deeper into the business and legal issues certain clauses present.
