Life Science and Medico
Challenges and requirements
The life science and medico sector is subject to an increasingly burdensome regulatory regime with respect to its activities and products. The protection of intellectual property rights, the marketing of the branch's products and the continual need for increased capital investment, as a result of enormous research expenses, are equally onerous. Product liability issues, as well as competition law matters materialising as a result of collaborations between industry players complicates matters further.
How we can help
Our advice encompasses, among others
We have specialists in each of the key legal disciplines with respect to which life science and medico businesses and investors require advice. In particular, we have specific knowledge of the intellectual property matters of relevance to this branch, for example, the marketing, sale and distribution of drugs, medical equipment and cosmetic products, as well as the parallel importing of drugs. In addition, we have substantial experience in the conduct of injunction proceedings and cases concerning validity issues, the infringement of intellectual property rights and product liability. We assist Danish and foreign businesses within the medicinal and biotech field, as well as with respect to the purchase of, or investment in, life science and medico businesses.
