How can we help?
We render advice to Danish and international pharmaceutical and biotech companies and assist venture funds in investing in and acquiring life science and medico businesses.
Our lawyers have specialist knowledge of all the key legal disciplines, which are in great demand by life science and medico businesses and investors. In particular, we are experts on the law of intellectual property rights relevant to the sector, including patents; parallel importing of medicinal products; and the marketing, sale and distribution of medicinal products, medical equipment and cosmetic products.
We have extensive experience in conducting injunction proceedings and cases concerning validity issues, infringement of intellectual property rights and product liability.
The life science and healthcare sector is subject to increasingly tighter activity and product regulation. Moreover, enormous research expenses necessitate ongoing capital funding and require uncompromising enforcement and protection of intellectual property rights, such as patents and the marketing of products.
Businesses must also respond to product liability issues as well as competition law matters materialising due to their business relationship with other industry players.
As a result, the sector requires value-adding and commercially viable specialist advice.
