opportunities.

  • Closed a complex transaction for a specialty pharmaceutical client in which a Chinese pharmaceutical entity invested in our client and agreed to collaborate with our client to develop and manufacture pharmaceutical products in China.
  • As general counsel for an NYSE-listed company with worldwide location, we closed an acquisition of a Canadian public company for $56MM in cash, $118MM in our client’s stock, and the assumption of approximately $235MM of the acquired company’s debt. The acquisition required working with local counsel in Canada to resolve issues under Canadian securities laws.
  • Obtained a favorable IRS private letter ruling for a foreign corporation permitting a retroactive “C” corporation election with the IRS for a domestic subsidiary formed as an LLC.
  • Represented a U.S. pharmaceutical company and its India-based subsidiary in numerous licensing and joint venture transactions with major educational and government organizations in India and represented them in their sale to a British entity. We also represented a principal of the acquired entities in a spinout of these entities, which involved, among other issues, special purpose financing arranged through an Indian private equity fund and coordinating U.S. and Indian tax and securities laws.
