Continuous innovation and evolution are hallmarks of
the life sciences & healthcare sector. At Lawford Davies
Denoon we recognise that we need to keep up with the
dynamic and diverse nature of this field and that our
clients will have very different perspectives and
requirements depending on whether they are a young
startup, an established biotechnology company, a large
pharmaceutical firm, or an NHS hospital trust.
We have worked with clients in each of these fields
and other stakeholders in different areas of law relating
to healthcare & pharmaceuticals including:
• intellectual property and commercial transactions
• regulatory matters – whether specific issues or
developing compliance programmes
• joint ventures, collaborations, mergers and
• legal and regulatory aspects of clinical trials
Addressing only one of these areas in isolation can be dangerous. It is important to understand and resolve intellectual property and regulatory issues when drafting
any agreement in this area. Different solutions will be needed depending matters as diverse as the underlying science, the therapeutic environment and the nature of the IP protection.
Our experience within various companies enhances our ability to manage these competing requirements and also ensures that our advice takes account of practicalities and commercial reality.
