institution negotiations
Our Negotiations Experience Streamlines the Process for Sponsors, CROs and Institutions

A Multitude of Research Institutions

Our sponsor clients collaborate with research institutions of all sizes. We have powerfully deep and broad experience negotiating with public universities, private universities, academic medical centers, hospitals, research foundations, health systems, private clinics and medical practices.  

We Know What’s Market

Our industry-institution negotiations experience positions us well to advise either party (not at the same time).  We know what research institutions look for in contract negotiations with industry partners, whether the industry partner is a public, private, domestic, international, investigational-only or commercial stage company. 

Diverse Scenarios

Our negotiations with research institutions vary from clinical trial agreements and informed consents to Business Associate Agreements and challenging HIPAA questions to core lab services agreements and CEC vendor services and more.
