Welcome to Labrador Advisors



Labrador Advisors is a boutique advisory firm that works with pharmaceutical companies, specialty pharma and biotech companies, offering strategy, corporate development, business development and transaction support. We provide a broad spectrum of advisory services that can be tailored to client needs, but areas of special focus include China entry strategy, partnering (including in- and out- licensing) and strategic advisory. Additional offerings include portfolio management, joint ventures, spinoffs, venture capital and financing strategy. In select situations, we also work with private equity on new investment targets. Our network is global, with extensive reach across the United States, Europe and China.

Labrador is led by Debra Yu, MD, who is a hands-on operator with a distinctive and unique skill set having worked in venture capital, business development, strategy, banking and management consulting. She has held positions both in private firms as well as inside companies - both in Big Pharma and small and emerging-growth environments. Debra brings perspectives from all sides of the table, and works actively to bridge parties to drive deals to closure. Along with a team of additional members and resources, Labrador offers the caliber of expertise and relationships found in some of the largest advisory firms along with the attentive and detailed service expected from a boutique.
