International Pharmaceutical Law

International Pharmaceutical Law

The UK offers an unrivalled environment and opportunity for life sciences businesses around the world. Whether you are a UK business exporting or importing your products and services or an overseas business setting up or investing in the UK, we can offer you the specialist legal and practical support you need to succeed.

Life Starters - Setting up a Life Sciences Business in the UK

If you are an overseas business looking to set up in the UK, we can advise you on the appropriate structure your venture should take and the key considerations you should be having when first setting up a pharmaceutical business.

Please see our corporate guide to setting up a business for more information on the types of corporate structures available.

In addition to the corporate aspects of a business, the following questions should also be considered:

  • What do I need to consider in advance of any pricing and reimbursement activity?
  • What tax efficient structure do I use to maximise the returns and tax benefits?
  • How do I break into the market and supply to customers?
  • How do I set a price and gain positive national or regional guidance, or how do I avoid it?

Who Are Life Starters?

Pharmaceutical Industry Network Group

Our Pharmaceutical Industry Network Group (PING) is a diverse networking group, solely for people who are in the pharmaceutical supply chain with the main aim to discuss and share best practice, ideas and generally help each other in times of great change.
