Investing in Life SciencesInvestments in life science ventures are high risk endeavors. Pabst Patent Group has significant experience working with investment groups in forming startup life science ventures and investing in or acquiring existing companies. We help investors understand, quantify and manage the risk involved in life science transactions.
For investors interested in developing a new company based on an idea or discovery, we start by conducting a white space analysis to understand the areas of highest potential impact. We then develop a comprehensive intellectual property strategy which details the patent application(s) with broad claims that need to be filed, technology that should be in-licensed and marks that need to be registered.
For investors interested in investing in or acquiring a company, we first conduct an analysis to understand the competitive landscape. We then conduct due diligence on the target company's existing patents, patent applications, trademarks, trade secrets and internal/external agreements. Our goal is to assist our clients make an informed investment decision.
