Life Sciences & Healthcare Lawyers

With over 150 international specialist lawyers across CMS and the support of the Lifesciences Asia-Pacific Network (LAN), we understand the scientific and commercial as well as the legal imperatives affecting your lifesciences business. We work with and have established long-term relationships with the top 100 lifesciences companies in the areas of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotechnology, agriculture and food.

Our experts, many of whom have worked in-house in your sector, have developed a shared capability in the areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices and diagnostics. As members and partners of major industry associations such as the ABPI, ABHI, BIVDA, PAGB, EFPIA and EUCOMED we help shape the legal frameworks impacting the lifesciences sector. 

We regularly advise our clients on their day-to-day operational needs such as, patent enforcement, commercial and clinical trial agreements, protection of privacy and trade secrets, e-health, support with advertisement and promotion of medicine, public sector procurement, pricing and reimbursement as well as regulatory advice. 

Equally, when you need lifesciences specialist advice for strategic agreements, planning a corporate transaction or embarking on litigation (whether product liability or otherwise), we have a team that is well versed in the industry issues to help you.
