Lifesciences & Healthcare lawyers

Discovery, innovation, market awareness and understanding are key to those life sciences and healthcare entities providing services and finance towards, and developing therapies and services for, the improvement of patient outcomes.

Due to the highly regulated nature of the industry, as an operator, investor, adviser, developer or licensee, you will be dealing with complex legal and regulatory requirements to launch, maintain and deliver your products and services to the market.

Our Life Sciences team is immersed in the sector and we appreciate our clients' technology; we are not just lawyers, we are immunologists, geneticists, chemists and engineers. With this background we are ideally placed to really understand your business, how it is changing and what you want from a trusted advisor. Highly relevant to this sector is our fully integrated European patent attorney practice. Spanning multiple disciplines, both legal and scientific, our lawyers and patent attorneys operate as one team with a common outlook and objective for our clients - providing pragmatic, innovative and effective advice, efficiently.

Our Healthcare team is truly immersed in the sector with over 25 years of advising and shaping the sector through in depth experience, knowledge and sector associations and collaborations. We have significant experience of working within the public and private sectors, giving us a complete perspective of the issues you face, allowing us to offer you commercial and well rounded advice.

With active memberships in major industry bodies such as the ABPI, ABHI, BIVDA, EUCOMED / MedTech Europe, Healthcare UK and the BPF, we help shape the legal and compliance frameworks impacting the life sciences and healthcare sectors.

As well as clients' significant, complex and strategic transactional, financing and structuring matters, we regularly advise on day-to-day business operations, covering areas such as public procurement, tax, competition, IP protection, exploitation and enforcement, product liability, supply chain, outsourcing and other commercial agreements and employment and pensions matters, as well as regulatory, disputes, risk and compliance advice. Truly a full service.
