Our service

Enabling timely global access to a therapy for patients across the world can be challenging for pharmaceutical and biotech companies.

They may be unable to commercialise alone due to lack of footprint, resources and regional knowledge in a particular territory. They may have to launch much later in some countries, and not at all in others. They may experience unexpected disruption in the supply chain or decide to withdraw from a market or markets.

Ensuring access at these times may be outside the company’s core capabilities. It may be necessary to partner to enable quicker and broader access, via traditional licensing or more comprehensive commercialisation and distribution models. It may be necessary to make it available in unlicensed markets outside the usual commercial channels.

That’s when they need a trusted partner who can maximise reach and revenue through optimising access in both licensed and unlicensed markets, pre-launch or non-launch, who offers licensing or flexible distributor models.
