We help healthcare and life sciences clients to navigate the rapidly changing commercial and regulatory landscape and address the challenges of operating successfully in this most-heavily scrutinized of sectors.
Healthcare and life sciences companies face some of the tightest regulation in the world, while at the same time having to contend with major issues such as loss of patent protection on blockbuster drugs and competition from generics, rising R&D costs, and IP and data protection. Regulation in this sector changes rapidly and varies widely from country to country, so companies have to be agile in interpreting these changes, particularly in relation to their marketing strategies.
As trusted advisors to a number of pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and healthcare providers, our Healthcare & Life sciences team understands these pressures and helps industry participants to overcome them. We advise clients on a wide range of legal and regulatory issues around healthcare and life sciences advertising and marketing, as well as clinical trials, competition and trade issues, commercial agreements, data privacy, employment issues and market entry. We also represent clients in product liability cases and complex disputes.
