One consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic is that many pharmaceutical and biotech companies are being required to address novel business issues, many of which were not contemplated by existing legal contracts and business arrangements. One of these issues is the impact of the pandemic on the global pharmaceutical drug supply chain. The purpose of this Webinar is to address some important supply agreement terms that a prudent pharmaceutical company decision-maker or attorney should consider, especially in light of the new COVID-19 landscape. 

Following this Webinar, participants will be able to:
- identify various important issues that arise in negotiating and drafting supply agreements, especially in light of the COVID pandemic;
- analyze appropriate solutions to these issues; and
- defend these solutions when negotiating with adversaries.
