Life Sciences Quarterly
Life Sciences Quarterly is a new quarterly seminar series developed for Ropes & Gray’s life sciences clients. We will bring you the insights of Ropes & Gray attorneys, speakers from government and industry and other professionals, as they examine key developments, issues and trends affecting the life sciences industry. Please watch for invitations quarterly.
We hope you will join us at our inaugural seminar:
PREPARING FOR AND MANAGING A STOCK DROP
A sharp drop in a company’s stock price frequently results in the filing of one or more securities class actions. 2016 saw the highest number of securities class actions since 2000, with more than 1 in 20 publicly traded companies becoming a target in that year alone. The life sciences industry remains a particular focus of these lawsuits, which often follow the release of clinical trial results or an FDA action. A trio of panelists from Ropes & Gray’s business & securities litigation group will arm you with tools to prepare for, and respond to, a drop in your stock price, including strategies for mitigating risk, preparing for potential litigation and enforcement activity, and communicating with key stakeholders.
