Dealmaking in a Changing Regulatory Landscape

This joint event by the Pharmaceutical Licensing Group (PLG) and TOPRA (The Organisation for Professionals in Regulatory Affairs) brings together the complimentary areas of business development and licensing & regulatory affairs needed for successful dealmaking.

Optimise your early phase development and due diligence

In the dynamic world of mergers and acquisition of medicinal products, portfolios and pharmaceutical companies, professionals with a variety of skill sets and experience need to work together to get the best outcome – whether that’s doing a deal or deciding to walk away. To be optimally effective, members of the team need to understand how to get the best from their colleagues. This joint conference with regulatory professionals offers business development and licensing professionals an ideal opportunity to explore the impact of regulatory on how deals are structured and the commercial impacts of early phase regulatory decisions down the line.

Regulatory issues in early development

  • Due diligence by regulatory professionals of BD&L deals.
  • Legal requirements affecting regulatory and in BD&L teams.
  • Changing landscape – listen to a panel discussion on the potential regulatory and commercial aspects of future deals between UK and EU countries following Brexit.

Contribute to your organisation's success

  • Raise awareness of the value of regulatory affairs input at the highest levels.
  • Make a difference to the bottom line on your regulatory projects.
  • Work effectively with other business units at a strategic level.
  • Take your regulatory preparedness and career development to the next level.

Following the conclusion of the presentation delegates are invited to remain for an evening reception (5.30pm-6.30pm) to allow continued discussion and networking.
