Our motto is "Connecting life sciences expertise in a changing world" where we are:
We are passionate about providing an excellent service to our clients - both national and international - in the life sciences sector and helping them and our wider network through our thought leadership, so that they in turn can bring excellence to others’ lives.
The sector is experiencing enormous changes. Government spending constraints and the changing environment following Brexit are massive challenges, but where there is change, there is opportunity.
The industry is also experiencing positive change, including:
We help our pharmaceuticals and life sciences clients to exploit those opportunities.
Our solicitors are at the forefront of industry activity to really understand the issues different areas of the sector are facing. We build long-term relationships with clients, by understanding their business and having a commercial approach.
We provide services to pharmaceutical organisations in the United Kingdom and across the world who are involved with different parts of the pharmaceutical supply chain. From early stage drug development through to manufacturing, distribution and retail pharmacy, our experienced pharmaceuticals lawyers can provide specialist legal advice.
Our clients range from entrepreneurial, innovative businesses, to ‘big pharma’, and include those involved in specialised medicine, biotechnology, cell and gene therapies, CROs, CMOs, suppliers, medical devices, digital health, distributors, importers/exporters and retail pharmacies.
We focus our legal advice and support on three core areas:
We support clients across multi service lines, being seen as their trusted service provider across different areas of legal need.
Our team works closely with our Healthcare and Technology teams in the fields of community pharmacy, MedTech and Digital Health, and our Higher Education team on R&D opportunities.
Please see our recent examples of areas we have helped our clients.
Our international reach combines both inbound non-UK businesses with a need for advice and assistance in the UK. We have an extensive network of contacts and close relationships throughout the world, to enable us to place clients and our wider sector contacts in expert hands, whatever their need might be.
We can introduce you to our global network of lawyers and professionals who advise and support the work of our clients in the Pharmaceuticals & Life Sciences sector. These include contacts within the Association of European Lawyers (of which we are a founding member) and Eurojuris.
