Healthcare and life sciences are among the largest and fastest-growing industries in the world, in addition to being the most regulated, with rapidly changing rules and regulations that often differ from one country to another. Healthcare and life sciences companies face a number of challenges, including trying to understand how laws impact their market and M&A strategies while contending with rising R&D costs, loss of patent protection of blockbuster drugs, pricing pressures, and competition from generics. Rapid convergence of the healthcare, life sciences and technology sectors requires even more legal expertise given the additional data privacy and intellectual property concerns.
As one of the first law firms to advise pharmaceutical companies, our healthcare and life sciences lawyers understand the challenges industry players face and what it takes to overcome them. As trusted advisors to the world's largest pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and healthcare services companies, we have a multidisciplinary team who applies their expertise to help clients overcome legal and business challenges.
Completing more cross-border transactions than any other law firm, our global healthcare and life sciences team not only works across borders, but across practice areas to coordinate the worldwide protection of healthcare patents and brands, develop global transfer pricing and tax planning strategies, and represent clients in product liability cases and complex disputes. We also advise on the legal and regulatory aspects of healthcare and life sciences advertising and marketing, clinical trials, competition and trade, commercial agreements, data privacy, employment issues, and market entry.
