BDO, McCarter & English, USI Insurance Services and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority invite you and your colleagues to attend a complimentary life sciences afternoon panel discussion and networking event.
Topics to be discussed include:
  • The full range of programs and services offered by the state of New Jersey to fuel the growth of emerging life science companies
  • Federal and state tax incentive programs geared toward fostering investment in R&D and how recent changes could provide valuable incentives to companies
  • The importance of strategic corporate partners for early-stage biotech companies and how to attract investors – a critical step towards monetization
  • M&A transaction liability considerations, including acquisition due diligence, director’s and officer’s liability, and representations and warranties insurance coverage
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to network with your peers and hear from industry leaders on the challenges and opportunities facing life science companies today.
