Our multidisciplinary healthcare, life sciences and pharmaceutical team acts in all legal areas relating to the health sector.

We handle important transactions and support the development of strategic partnerships, acquisitions and structural investments in this sector. Our team advises private companies and  groups on a wide variety of commercial agreements, including manufacturing, supply, distribution, licensing, co-development and product marketing agreements. We also help clients with agreements to transfer marketing authorisations, intellectual property rights and other assets.

We have advised clients on a broad range of regulatory and compliance issues in different jurisdictions. Our advice has covered prices, prior medical assessments, reimbursements, clinical trials, European certifications, statements of responsibility, pharmacovigilance, advertising and data protection. Our team provides support in various markets and with various health regulators. This advice covers everything from medicines, medical devices, food supplements, borderline products, controlled substances and healthcare to new technologies for prevention, diagnosis and treatment, including e-health projects. Regardless of the topic, we help companies and organisations to anticipate regulatory risks, to define effective strategies and to achieve their business goals.

We deal with all types of administrative licensing, for manufacturers, distributors and retailers, and at all stages of the product cycle. The team also represents clients in the growing area of public procurement for health products and services, and it has extensive experience in the field of debt recovery.

We advise the industry on evaluating, defining and handling strategies to protect intellectual property, including trade and industrial secrets, and exclusive rights. Our team also assists its clients with the resolution of disputes, and it acts in the fields pre-litigation, litigation and arbitration.
