Cipcic-Bragadin Mesic & Associates has advised Pfizer on a global business combination with Mylan N.V. The transaction involved a spin-off of Pfizer’s Upjohn business and a subsequent merger of that business with Mylan N.V. to form a new global generics company, called "Viatris." Bird & Bird was global lead counsel to Pfizer, with Karanovic & Partners providing local support for Serbia and Jadek & Pensa providing local support in Slovenia. 

According to Cipcic-Bragadin Mesic & Associates, “Viatris is forecast to have a market capitalization of about USD 24 billion and will include in its portfolio blockbuster products like Pfizer’s Viagra and Mylan’s EpiPen. It is now set to overtake the largest player in the global generics market, Teva, which commands more than USD 18.9 billion worth of global sales, according to European Pharmaceutical Review.”
