I have recommended the use of JSB’s services for biotechnology companies that did not have a fully developed business development department, in one case for the search of an M&A target and in the other for the out-licensing of an R&D project. I like both the well-structured approach JSB uses for the projects at hand, as well as the respect they receive from relevant companies.”— Rolf Stahel
Former CEO, Shire
JSB has extensive contacts within both the Biotech and Pharma industries and used these to rapidly identify a short list of potential partners. The process turned to M&A rather quickly and JSB is unique in that they could also serve as our M&A advisor in the transaction. They helped us run the diligence process to get to a successful sale of the assets in record time. I am pleased with their performance and would gladly use them in future projects.”— Gary Lyons
Former Chairman, NeurogesX
JSB Partners is the ideal firm for biotechnology companies to retain because of JSB’s reputation for working very closely at the beginning of an assignment with senior management and boards to precisely define the transaction that meets the client’s strategic needs. In addition, the firm is unique in its deep knowledge of the US and EU markets, having executed many cross-border transactions.”— Ken Bate
Former Chairman, Cubist
JSB employs strict process management and a professional approach. In addition, it is vital to have an independent third party advising you - not one that provides wishful thinking, but a truly realistic view. This is what sets them apart from other advisors.”— Stefan Weber
