Expert Witness Response E-113877

I have been involved in pharmaceutical patent, technology, and product licensing activities as both a pharmaceutical business development executive, in-house legal counsel, and independent consultant for more than 25 years. I have been involved in drafting and negotiating commercial and patent license agreements in numerous deals involving major pharmaceutical companies, development stage companies, and academic institutions during that time. I have worked for a major pharmaceutical company, and have consulted with and served on the board of directors of a number of smaller, development stage companies, both public and private – domestic and foreign. I have been called upon once as an expert witness on a prior patent licensing dispute involving a major pharmaceutical company and a major academic institution. I was asked to provide my opinion on the typical and most reasonable interpretation of some common licensing provisions in the agreement at issue. I provided extensive written evaluation and interpretation of many common licensing provisions that were in dispute.
