Our full-service group of Life Sciences specialists comprises lawyers who are passionate and knowledgeable about this dynamic yet highly regulated sector. They are regarded as leaders in their field and many have scientific and technical backgrounds. The group focuses on patent, regulatory, major contract and competition law disputes across the life sciences sector.
We understand that having the right regulatory advice is critical to your success and we advise our clients on the full range of commercial agreements including: licences, research and development agreements, large-scale clinical trial programmes and technology transfer.
Our clients range from multi-nationals to start-ups, operating in the pharmaceutical, medical device, biotechnology, agrochemical, crop science and veterinary medicine fields. The Life Sciences Group also works with academic institutions and non-profits, tailoring legal solutions in recognition of their institutional needs and risk preferences.
Known for our nimble and creative approach, we pursue every avenue to protect our clients' interests. For example, our regular use of civil search and asset freezing orders in counterfeit pharmaceutical and agrochemical cases sets us apart from our competitors.
And as new developments arise we provide our clients with clarity, most recently advising several clients on the regulatory landscape affecting medical cannabis and CBD products.
