Pepper Hamilton Represents Roivant Sciences in $1.1 Billion Equity Investment

Roivant Sciences, a health care company that seeks promising biomedical research, recently announced a $1.1 billion equity investment led by SoftBank Vision Fund to accelerate the launch of new subsidiaries. Pepper Hamilton served as intellectual property counsel for Roivant during the investment.

SoftBank Vision Fund’s investment will allow Roivant to create new subsidiaries, which fall outside its traditional biopharmaceutical development focus. The first company to join Roivant’s new technology-focused subsidiary will be Datavant, which seeks to speed up the process of delivering innovative medicine to patients, while reducing costs.

Pepper attorneys Ray Miller and Nicole Stakleff provided counsel during the investment.
