With the life sciences sector developing rapidly across the globe, investment, acquisitions and R&D activity are becoming increasingly borderless. We meet the challenges involved through a multi-disciplinary and international team, working from our London, Dubai, Mumbai and Shanghai offices.
Our specialist lawyers advise across a range of key practice areas including corporate, commercial, product liability, regulatory, intellectual property and tax. Many of our lawyers have worked in-house for life sciences and pharmaceutical companies and so combine practical industry experience with their legal expertise when advising clients. We act for a range of companies including pharmaceutical and biotech companies, manufacturers, research organisations, universities, distribution companies and healthcare providers advising them on matters such as product development from licensing, co-development and co-promotion agreements; CRO and CMO contracts; distribution and marketing agreements; IP due diligence and freedom to operate; patent litigation; and, regulatory issues. We also advise on the formation and corporate structuring of alliances and joint ventures, acquisitions and disposal of assets and companies and the establishment and funding of start-ups.
