Ben Haas - Latham & Watkins LLP

Within: Healthcare: life sciences

Considered by clients as ‘superior’, Latham & Watkins LLP's life sciences practice stands out for its ‘expertise, breadth of capabilities, diligence and customer focus’. Washington DC’s regulatory expert John Manthei acted for pharmaceutical manufacturer Alvogen, obtaining a temporary restraining order preventing the State of Nevada from using medication distributed by the client in an execution. Manthei and Ben Haas (who is also based in Washington DC) assisted Endo and its subsidiary Par Sterile Products with a challenge to FDA’s implementation of the 2013 Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA) in relation to the regulation of pharmaceutical compounding by outsourcing facilities. Silicon Valley’s Alan Mendelson represents emerging and public growth life sciences companies in a number of business transactions, including M&A, private placements and public offerings. The ‘fully engaged and very accessibleNathan Ajiashvili, who is based in New York and specializes in capital markets, and Washington DC’s associate Eitan Bernstein are also recommended.
