Representative Matters

  • Represented a biotechnology company in a 20-year lease in the La Jolla/UTC area of San Diego for a 470,000 square headquarters. This was the biggest deal of its kind in San Diego history. 
  • Represented a life sciences company in connection with two major real estate development and construction projects. The first was the acquisition, development, and construction of a 75-acre, approximately $400 million pharmaceutical research, development, manufacturing, and distribution facility . The second was the acquisition, development, and construction of its $150 million West Coast corporate headquarters, laboratory and research facility. 
  • Represented a biotechnology company in $7 million PIPE offering. 
  • Represented a life sciences client in a 10-year lab/office/R&D lease (90,000 rentable square feet) in UTC area of San Diego. 
  • Represented a healthcare data management company in a lawsuit filed by the former CEO who claimed he was wrongly denied stock, severance, and was not repaid loans he made to the company upon termination. After six months of litigation, we settled the claims at mediation for less than the company’s initial offer. 
  • Represented a biotechnology company in the negotiation of several strategic alliance agreements, including license, development and distribution agreements.
