Cahill advised biopharmaceutical company Nektar Therapeutics in connection with its agreement to sell to Royalty Pharma its royalties on future sales of CIMZIA®, a drug used to treat Crohn’s disease, under Nektar's agreement with UCB Pharma, and MIRCERA®, a drug used to treat anemia, under Nektar's agreement with Roche. In consideration for the sale, Royalty Pharma will pay Nektar an aggregate cash payment of $124.0 million.
