Life Sciences

Our global Life Sciences team comprises a multi-disciplinary group of professionals, acting for businesses across the pharmaceuticals, biotech, veterinary, consumer health, med tech, and diagnostics sub-sectors.

Our experts advise across the entire product cycle - from product development, clinical trials to market entry, advice on reimbursement claims in Germany and pan-European locations, and post-market pharmacovigilance.

The sector team operates on a cross-border basis and covers the full spectrum of legal support. We advise on mergers and acquisitions, IP (both contentious and non-contentious), regulatory, dispute resolution, commercial transactions (including licensing and collaborations) as well as capital markets and finance.

Our international network ensures that we have a ready resource of expertise in a number of jurisdictions, including those in emerging markets, and that we are in the pole position to advise on cross-border work.
