Each of us has a different story.
At Loeb & Loeb, our story began in 1909. Even then, we
were known as an innovator, connecting people, ideas and
opportunities. Ahead of the times in our approach to legal
services. While others were just watching the profound
changes in the way people connect, weve always been in the
thick of things.
This is something about us that hasnt changed in over
a century. Today, were still all about people and our
connections to each other.
The following stories are wonderful examples of some of
the ways weve been connecting recently within our firm
and with our clients. They describe how weve been helping
clients advance the world and bring people closer together.
Perhaps your story is part of our story, too. Or maybe one
it will be. This is truly a collaborative world. Embrace it.

Drug Launch Dash
C R Y S T A L S T R U C T U R E O F P C S K 9
For starters, Regeneron is one of the worlds most exciting
biopharmaceutical companies. Praluent (also known as
alirocumab) is a first-in-class drug. And Loeb & Loeb
along at just the right time to help build a sampling
to assist in bringing it to market.
Arguably the biggest drug launch of 2015, Praluent is an
alternative cholesterol-lowering medication for patients who
have an inherited condition that causes LDL (the bad form of
cholesterol) or who have had atherosclerotic heart problems
and are not at goal with their statin.
Why is Praluent a game changer? Its the first in a new class
of drugs called PCSK9 inhibitors. It works by making the
efficient at getting rid of LDL. And, according to Dr.
Antman, president of the American Heart Association, its
a powerful new way of lowering the bad form of cholesterol,
and that has profound implications in dealing with the
burden of vascular disease.
Regeneron, known for innovative research and development
and impressive growth, tapped Loeb & Loebs FDA
and Compliance Practice for the design and rollout of a
commercialization and sample distribution plan for Praluent.
With FDA approval expected in a matter of months and
unprecedented product demand on the horizon, Loeb &
Loebs team knew they had to act fast.
We were tasked with making sure samples of Praluent were
available immediately following approval.
This story may be one for the medical textbooks.

a program that would normally take months to launch.
Our team also handled nationwide sales force training.

A New City Rises
When completed, the development will include over
17 million gross square feet of new space, including office,
retail, residential, hotel, school and cultural uses.
The 28-acre megaproject is being built over the Long Island
Rail Roads working rail yards. To accomplish this, two
massive steel and concrete platforms are being erected to
cover the active rail lines and form the foundation for much
of the development.

We represented Deutsche Bank as agent and lender in the
Eastern Rail Yards platform construction loan and in the
$1.5 billion construction financing for the retail center
anchored by Neiman Marcus.
What were the challenges?
Construction of the 1 million-square-foot retail space
overlaps with the development of Hudson Yards largest
office tower, requiring coordination to ensure the
financed but interdependent buildings could each be
completed as if no connectivity existed. The many relevant
parties structured and negotiated a co-construction
agreement to address these unusual issues.
In addition, lawyers from Loeb & Loebs energy and real
estate groups worked closely with the developer and its
counsel to solve some interesting power issues presented by
We remained undaunted by the complexities as we worked
with an exceptional team at Deutsche Bank as well as the
developer and nine other major law firms over a three-year

The Gift of Art
This is how Audrey Irmas felt.
A noted philanthropist and one of the most prominent art
collectors in the United

generous donor to a
variety of Jewish causes, major art museums, educational
institutions, and health

Its hard to part with valuable art you love.
But the philanthropic benefits of a sale can be worth it,
especially if the cause is close to your heart.
The painting was first donated to Audreys private
foundation, the Audrey Irmas Foundation for Social
Justice. The foundation pledged a $30 million gift to
Loeb & Loebs team then handled all arrangements
with Sothebys for the auction, including negotiating
extraordinary financial terms, premier advertising,
catalog placement and marketing for the Twombly

After fulfilling Audreys $30 million pledge to the
Wilshire Boulevard Temple, the entire balance of the
proceeds of the sale will be used toward projects
sponsored by the Audrey Irmas Foundation for Social
Justice. The foundation has funded a school and an
orphanage in Africa, among many other educational,
health care and charitable endeavors.

Live Music Evolution30
As technology transformed the traditional recorded music
business model, live music emerged as one of the strongest
engines of growth in the industry. Music festivals exploded
popularity becoming vital revenue streams for artists,
and promoters; platforms for integrated sponsorships among
the most sophisticated advertisers; and sought-after
experiences for fans across genres.
The American concert business once dominated by
superstar acts playing giant arenas and stadiums has
been revolutionized by the now-ubiquitous festival format,
featuring dozens of established and emerging artists, and
a host of business opportunities and legal challenges for
participants at all levels.
So how does Loeb & Loeb fit in? Weve been a part of the
music evolution for decades, helping bring these events and
experiences to life.
From supporting entrepreneurial investors building niche
regional festivals from the ground up to working on
sophisticated financing deals, artists agreements and
commercial arrangements for the giants of the destination
festival world, we are entrenched.
The multifaceted, multibillion-dollar live music industry

The big festivals get bigger every year amplified by a
wave of consolidation within the industry. Acting on behalf
of strategic acquirers and sellers, our attorneys have
structured and negotiated some of the most significant
transactions in the festival space.
With festival crowds ranging from the tens of thousands
to the hundreds of thousands, advertisers and marketers
are also eager to leverage these tremendous consumer
engagement opportunities. We help navigate complex
sponsorship, licensing and digital rights issues to make
connections between the worlds biggest brands and live
music properties across a range of platforms.
Theres no denying that the past decade has been a true
golden age for music festivals. As the industry reaches
maturity, organizers and promoters will work to
