Goodwin + KPMG 4th Annual Symposium @ JP Morgan

Goodwin and KPMG hosted their 4th Annual Symposium held during the 41st Annual JP Morgan Healthcare Conference week.

Life sciences companies have many opportunities to thrive in the face of changing tides. At this year's symposium in January, we delved into strategies that enable life sciences companies to enhance research and development; optimize value from licensing, M&A, and other transactions; and secure capital for growth. By embracing these opportunities, life sciences companies can not only avoid getting caught in a riptide but chart new paths to success. If you missed our Symposium in person, please check the video recordings of each panel.
