Life Sciences and Healthcare

From patients to patents – a proven partner keeping pace with change

Whether it's a start-up tackling the next big thing or an established multinational expanding into new markets, we bring insight and know-how to the dynamic Healthcare and Life Sciences sector. Our multidisciplinary advice covers all relevant areas of law.

Our track record in patent litigation and arbitration (including our extensive SPC litigation history in Switzerland) sets us firmly apart. We're also one of few firms with the knowledge and expertise to litigate around biosimilars – drawing on our deep, understanding of both biotech and pharma.

In a sector where knowing the detail of regulation is every bit as important as finding the best pathway through it, we advise on all regulatory issues surrounding medical devices and pharmaceuticals – both before and after companies file for authorisations. And we handle all stages of related litigation, whether it's a civil action involving private parties or an administrative matter against the state.

We play an active role in Life Sciences M&A, advising on all of its aspects including early and late stage PE finance, corporate and regulatory. And we work extensively in licensing and technology transfer. This includes negotiating and offering expert advice on licensing agreements, whether they involve universities, large private players, start-ups or established companies – for example those wishing to join forces or invest in new opportunities.
