The legal system is effective. But nobody would maintain that it’s easy to understand. That’s why I decided to look a bit more in depth after seeing some news about a legal dispute involving medical research and an investment bank. These two groups might not seem to have much in common. But the more I looked into the case the more I saw how intricately linked they are. And it became increasingly apparent why the research firm, Relmada Therapeutics, was able to issue a temporary restraining order and associated injunction against Laidlaw and Company. I think one of the main reasons for being able to do so simply comes down to the complexity of the case. It’d be quite easy to muddy the waters and confuse people with misleading information.
At the same time, the more I thought about it the more I was able to see multiple sides to the case. Laidlaw was obviously in a difficult position when it came to funding Relmada Therapeutics. I know that medical research can be something of a gamble. There’s the initial costs to develop a new medicine. Then there’s a huge investment after that to actually test it for various different conditions. And even after that one simply has to hope that it’s strong enough to be competitive in the market.
To get a better understanding of the case I wanted to learn more about Laidlaw. And the first thing I found out was also one of the most impressive. I was outright shocked to see that they’d been around since 1842. That, combined with presence in multiple countries, painted a very impressive picture of the company.
But it was really the human face of Laidlaw which made the best impression on me. Matthew Eitner and James Ahern were both featured quite prominently within Laidlaw’s site. This in turn really convinced me that they’re convinced that it represents their interests. And the biography information on both men had enough altruistic works to convince me in turn that they had noble intentions. It paints a picture of a company trying to do the right thing even under difficult circumstances.
