Healthcare, life sciences and pharmaceuticals


We hold a strong position in this sector because we respond to the need for legal support in new areas of scientific knowledge and of biomedical technologies, one of the biggest challenges in recent decades in terms of innovation and development.

We provide legal assistance to Portuguese and international companies that operate in healthcare, life sciences and pharmaceuticals, particularly in the regulatory, business and competition areas.

We have the know-how our clients need on developments in Portuguese and international legislation, and on legislative policies in the area of regulation, and implementation and enforcement of strategies. We do not only advise on traditional pharmaceutical industry issues and research. Our team is also skilled in new issues in the area of biomedical research. These include nanotechnology, diagnosis, genomics, medical devices, biobanks, bioinformatics, genetic testing, pharmacogenetics, new drugs and clinical trials. We also assist clients on new medical technologies such as medically assisted procreation and stem cells.

Another important aspect of our work is helping our clients protect their biotechnological inventions by advising them on development and transfer of technology, and on patents. We help our clients on data protection issues for doctors and in respect of genetics and biometrics.

We advise companies that work with pharmaceutical products, biotechnology and medical devices. We also advise companies in pharmaceutical distribution, and even regulatory authorities, academic institutions and other organisations involved in medical care.
