The Altered Future of Life Sciences Dispute Resolution

60 minute program followed by cocktails and hors d oeuvres
Now is a profoundly disruptive time for businesses in the life sciences industry, as they experience an influx of investment and deal making, disruptions to supply chains, and a new paradigm for research, development, manufacturing, distribution and commercialisation. All of which has resulted in no shortage of disputes—from fights between nations over limited resources, to quarrels between regulators and industry about market approvals, to garden-variety employment, vendor, and investor conflicts.
This panel will consider how disputes in the life sciences have changed since the pandemic, how they are likely to change in the future, and what best practises can be implemented to prepare. It will explore how alternative dispute resolution might be used more effectively at an early stage through processes such as early neutral involvement and evaluation, as well as how specialized practices in fields such as construction and entertainment could be successfully applied in life sciences.
Join us for a conversation about how dispute resolution can better meet the goals of the life sciences community—and help keep everyone's focus on patients.
