The Harel Group

Connecting Pharmaceutical Companies Around The World 

The Harel Group's main service is the identification of partnering opportunities and the facilitation of commercial collaboration between pharmaceutical companies operating in Fast Growing Markets (Licensees) and U.S./European/Japan based pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies (Licensors). 

 
These commercial collaborations add value to both parties as follows:

 

Companies that do not have a presence in Fast Growing Markets (Licensors) will benefit from relations with leading regional/local companies that can facilitate the registration of their products, protect their brands and initiate the commercialization of their products in Fast Growing Markets.

 

At the same time, companies in Fast Growing Markets (Licensees) will benefit from an association with research-based pharmaceutical companies and from the commercialization of their products in these markets.

 

The Harel Group also provides a variety of services related to the following types of transactions:


  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Joint Ventures
  • Divestitures (e.g. products and facilities)
  • Licensing
  • Distribution


Mergers and Acquisitions

The Harel Group serves as a “buy side” advisor to companies wishing to acquire small to mid-size U.S.-based companies and a “sell side” advisor to small start-up life sciences companies interested in partnerships and acquisitions. 

 

The Harel Group prepares non-confidential and confidential material, facilitates the introduction of potential buyers or partners, supports the due diligence process, collects proposals and negotiates transactions, all in close collaboration with its clients.

 

The Harel Group's services include credentialed regulatory, legal, finance, tax and manufacturing support.
