Combining deep scientific and technical knowledge, we apply our commercial nous and experience to anticipate and deliver innovative, value-enhancing solutions.

We partner with our clients at every level of their businesses to help them achieve their goals: from strategic advice on "bet-the-company" transactions and disputes to merger control, regulatory investigations, commercial contracts and licensing.

Our intellectual property lawyers, the majority of whom have scientific or engineering backgrounds, understand that innovation is at the heart of the pharmaceutical industry. We help the world's leading pharmaceutical companies to use intellectual property to achieve commercial outcomes and competitive advantage, and have acted on some of the most complex transactions and disputes in the market.

Our integrated pharmaceuticals team spans our network of offices, and together with our preferred, trusted local law firms, work as one to provide commercial solutions—wherever you operate.
