Case Study: Mid-Size Company

In 2012, Vertex Pharmaceuticals announced its intention to conduct three simultaneous pivotal Phase III studies and two simultaneous Phase II combination studies, all for its lead compound.  The company did not have the legal “manpower” for this undertaking on staff and rather than add additional attorneys, who may only be needed full-time for the duration of the start-up period, Vertex retained Contracts Associates to be part of its team of reviewers. Contracts Associates handled reviews in the Company’s proprietary contract management system, with external permissions, and our ability to work with their system made all of the difference.  Contract reviews came in and were handled in “real-time”, as no internal administrator was needed to upload our work into the CMS system (a method that some clients choose to utilize).

We are proud to have been part of that historic and successful endeavor.
