Keensight Capital Combination of Biovian and 3P Biopharmaceuticals

We advised Keensight Capital on the Finnish law aspects of the combination of Biovian and 3P Biopharmaceuticals, two leading biologics contract development and manufacturing organisations (CDMOs) backed by Keensight Capital, to establish 3PBIOVIAN, a new pan-European leader in its field.

The combined group will offer unparalleled end-to-end development and manufacturing services for all protein expression systems and viral vectors, both for drug substance and drug product, from preclinical to clinical development and commercial phases. With over 500 professionals, manufacturing sites in Pamplona-Noáin (Spain) and Turku (Finland) and its commercial office in Boston (USA), 3PBIOVIAN will become one of the main independent European bio-CDMOs.

We advised Keensight Capital alongside Paul Hastings, Keensight Capital’s lead legal counsel in the transaction, and Strelia and Garrigues, who, respectively, advised Keensight Capital on Luxembourgian and Spanish legal aspects of the combination.
