Mr. Given joins Elan from leading Irish law firm A&L Goodbody, where he was a Senior Corporate Partner. During Mr. Given’s over twenty years in private practice, his clients included many leading Irish and international corporates, including a number in the life sciences sector. Mr. Given has acted as Elan’s lead external counsel for over a decade, advising the company on all of its corporate activity.

Elan’s Chairman, Robert A. Ingram, and CEO, Kelly Martin, commented, “John is a uniquely talented and highly accomplished professional with over 20 years of relevant and in-depth experience in the global arena. His direct M&A expertise and proven track record in both transactions and advisory – serving both international and multi-sector clients - makes him an invaluable addition to our executive team. He is joining us at an exciting time as we advance the company – across multiple dimensions - following the recently announced Tysabri restructuring.”

Messrs. Ingram and Martin concluded, “We have no doubt that the Board, management team, employees, shareholders and industry partners will greatly benefit from John’s exceptional expertise, integrity and leadership. We are enthusiastic to have him join us to work across all aspects of our business”
