Like a lot of people I’ve always loved mysteries. The pages of fiction are where I usually get my latest fix of mystery and intrigue. But every now and then a real life mystery speaks to my inner detective. Though this might be the first instance I can think of where it was more about the economics of research funding procedure than anything more human interest. And the main reason is that economics and research are the main banner between the legal fight between Laidlaw & Company and Relmada Therapeutics. Laidlaw, the banking firm, had been financing Relmada’s medical research on new medications for chronic pain. As such they felt some measure of control was deserved. But what makes this really interesting is that the judge ordered a temporary restraining order and associated injunction against Laidlaw. There’s few things more interesting than a case where information has been sealed away. So I jumped into the role of digital detective and began looking for more information online. The first stop was to investigate the party which was now least able to speak for itself. I loaded up Laidlaw’s website in an attempt to learn more about them. And I was immensely pleased by what I found. Laidlaw has a style and history which can’t be denied. Amazingly enough they fit right in with the writing of Doyle himself. The company actually existed and functioned within the Victorian period of Europe. Knowing they were around back then really lended them a certain gravitas for me. But the human element is what really convinced me that the company was probably in the right. Or at least acting with positive intent. In particular, I was impressed by the representation the company’s executives had within the site. Matthew Eitner and James Ahern were particularly impressive in how open they were about their life. It was clear that the company wasn’t working to fund medical research for pure profit alone. Both men were involved with charity and medical works to the point where it was clear their hearts were in the right place. And given their leadership role within Laidlaw I think it’s safe to say that it’s the corporate viewpoint as well.
