Life sciences & healthcare

Our Life Sciences and Healthcare team work with some of the largest pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies and healthcare providers in the world to a diverse collective of small-to-medium-sized start-up enterprises ready to up-scale their business, and many companies in between. We guide ambitious global clients within these dynamic and innovative industries through the maze of connected legal, commercial, and regulatory challenges.

We devise transformative business transactions for our life sciences and healthcare clients through strategic partnering collaborations, raising or placing capital or completing game-changing M&A transactions, and act on contentious matters such as patent litigation, product liability, and disputes with regulators.

Our Life Sciences and Healthcare team protects the value of our clients’ businesses enabling global expansion by providing practical, commercial recommendations on their complex regulatory, competition, compliance, and data protection requirements.

Whether our clients are in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device (including IVD’s), digital health, or healthcare industry, companies and investors value our ability to provide seamless legal and regulatory advice across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Through working alongside our partner network, we can ensure global coverage, including the key US market.
