Life Sciences Commercial Disputes

Product development in the life sciences sector is frequently complex, costly, and time-consuming, and collaborations between companies are common.

Our experience helps clients navigate disputes involving drug development and commercialization and identify relevant commercial factors (size of the opportunity, therapeutic area, business risks, etc.). CRA has provided expert reports and testimony evaluating development and commercialization efforts and assessing damages associated with alleged contractual breaches.
