    Supporting pharmaceuticals and life sciences clients to implement growth plans, mitigate risk and manage disputes or investigations where these arise.

    With the life sciences sector developing rapidly across the globe, investment, acquisitions and R&D activity are becoming increasingly borderless.

    We support our client's strategic initiatives, across product portfolios, asset or company transactions and in the defence or pursuit of claims.

    Our multi-disciplinary team, working across our London, Dubai, Mumbai and Shanghai offices, act for pharmaceutical and life sciences companies, manufacturers, research companies, universities, distribution companies and healthcare providers. A number of lawyers within the team have an insider perspective on the key issues, having worked in-house at life sciences and pharmaceutical companies.

    We provide a range of specialised legal services covering product development from licensing, co-development and copromotion agreements, drafting and negotiation of CRO and CMO contracts and distribution and marketing agreements, breaches of patent, copyright and technology rights and clinical trials. We also advise on the formation and corporate structuring of alliances and joint ventures, acquisition and disposal of assets and companies and the establishment and funding of start-ups.
