Attorneys at an AM Law 100 firm defending a multinational biotech company against a lawsuit alleging breach of contract, negligence, and unjust enrichment needed an expert in vaccine development to make their case. The lawsuit, brought by a former partner and developer of vaccines for government agencies, alleged that the defendant backed out of a subcontract to manufacture a vaccine without providing the plaintiff with a suitable alternative for manufacture. Thus, forcing them to find another partner to fulfill the contract and redo work the defendant had already completed. There was a lot at stake for the defendant. The plaintiff sought a full refund of the originally paid fees and damages incurred in hiring a replacement manufacturer, transferring the manufacturing, and redoing work.
