Overview

Recognised by Who’s Who Legal as the leading international law firm for Life Sciences since 2007, our International Life Sciences Group works with over 50 % of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and has the largest patent litigation group in Europe.

Our practice is built on the belief that it is important to understand the scientific, ethical and business challenges facing companies in the sector to provide practical and commercially viable advice for our clients.

Our lawyers can advise on every aspect of the business cycle of a life science product or service. They can help you with corporate, regulatory, licensing and commercial transactions, competition & EU law and intellectual property advice. Specifically including technology transfers, IP licensing and transactions, regulatory and privacy issues, competition law, R&D collaborations, clinical trials, marketing arrangements, trade mark and patent disputes and product liability.

We work with a vast array of companies from pharmaceutical, bioinformatics, medical devices, biotech companies, universities and university spin outs, to investors and venture capital companies, manufacturers, distributors and clinical research organisations. We take a multi-disciplinary approach, delivering more than just the core legal and litigation services.
