Life Sciences Transfer Pricing & Tax Disputes

CRA leverages cross-functional expertise to deliver best-in-class services to clients in the Life Sciences sector including strategic consulting, IP litigation, antitrust, and transfer pricing.  Life sciences companies have high-stakes transfer pricing issues due to their high-value IP and the risks embedded within the value chain.  CRA’s transfer pricing economists have assisted numerous pre-clinical biotech companies with their initial international expansion and IP planning; and commercial-phase companies design and document intercompany pricing policies relating to their physical goods supply chains.  CRA experts have provided expert witness reports in GlaxoSmithKline vs. Commissioner and in state transfer pricing disputes.
