Each project we undertake is structured to meet each client’s specific needs, but our key capabilities include the following:

Commercial Launch & Performance Improvement

We have helped many clients plan new product launch to maximize value of product’s attributes and label claims. We have helped major franchises and smaller companies develop and implement launch programs. When required, we have also helped a number of clients develop strategies to address product introductions that have experienced a “failure to launch”. Our professionals can also help maximize the Return on Investment of promotional spend, including reallocating promotional spend between categories.

Refining Development Strategy for Pipeline Candidates

We have extensive experience objectively assessing the commercial opportunities for therapeutic candidates in various stages of development. This frequently includes combining primary and secondary research to confirm the most attractive opportunities for a pipeline candidate and refine the clinical program to maximize the likely value of the product upon approval. Many of these projects involve the development of sophisticated financial models to quantify the impact of various development scenarios to help inform decisions regarding development and investment strategy.

Use our unique strategic approach to create and manage your product-related intellectual capital. Our significant experience developing life cycle management strategies enables us to create strategies for your business that improve your product development processes. We leverage our significant experience in all aspects of pharmaceutical marketing, including new product planning, commercial strategy development, brand planning, pharmaceutical product launch, product growth maximization, and portfolio strategy. In addition, we have worked closely with senior client management and their outside counsel to respond to potential generic competition. We leverage insights from multiple "at-risk" launches and have proven our ability to help execute a number of response models based on each client’s specific circumstances.

Business Development Screening & Execution Assistance
