Eversheds Harry Elias is pleased that Shaun Leong was the Keynote Speaker at the Pharma Gorilla, held on 26 June 2019 at the Le Meridien Sentosa.

The Pharma Gorilla is an international conference with focus on developments in law and technology in the bitotech, pharmaceuticals, and life sciences space. It has editions held in New York, Dubai, Berlin, Delhi and Singapore, and this was their inaugural edition in Singapore.

The conference was attended by giants in the space such as Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Sandoz, Abbott and Baxter. 

Shaun gave a speech entitled “Crisis management in the pharmaceutical and life sciences sector – what you need to do in the first 72 hours of a crisis” where he shared views on how to put in place an effective risk management system to quickly mitigate risks from escalating beyond control within the early stage of a crisis. 

Shaun was also a panel speaker for other sessions regarding impact of artificial intelligence in the biotech, life sciences sector, and the disruption caused by digital marketing in the Pharma industry. 

This lends on Shaun’s experience where he represented a global pharma company for a class action and mass product liability crisis in South Korea that involved several hundred victims. Shaun was substantially engaged in all aspects of legal and strategic work around the case; including work on: mass civil claims filed by victims, mediation, settlement and compensation, forensic investigations work in cooperation with Korean authorities, criminal defence work in relation to charged individuals, and strategic & legal advice re communications with media and political stakeholders.
