We represent both Swedish and international clients with expert advice in the field, including pharmaceutical, health care, biotech, medtech and pharmacy. Our work includes commercial agreements, regulatory matters, intellectual property, transactions and disputes.
Our boutique concept, in combination with a broad network of contacts, is one of our main strenghts, as it allows us to focus on our nische and provide our clients with a high level of attention, while still providing advice in all relevant legal areas.
The team regularly assist clients in a wide range of commercial and contractual matters. The lawyers contribute during the entire commercial process, from the preparation phase, through negotiation and moving on to finalization; but also legal matters during the term of an agreement, the termination thereof as well as any subsequent disputes and settlements.

Intellectual Property and Marketing

Their work has specifically included IP matters relating to licensing (in and out) and other commercial relations as well as restrictions and issues related to marketing activities, including for example the changing landscape of marketing through social media.
Research and Development
Health Care Compliance
During the last years health care compliance has had a major impact for the highly regulated life science and healthcare industry. The possibility for collaborations between the industry, healthcare organizations, healthcare professionals, governments and patient organizations is crucial to enable future leaps of progress within the area of research and development but also a way to optimize the use of the medicines and products by the patients. However, patient safety and privacy as well as transparency is critical. The team regularly advises clients in various issues relating to e.g. EFPIA Disclosure code (including local rules of each member state) concerning marketing materials and collaborations between the industry and healthcare organizations/professionals.
Manufacturing and Distribution
The industries of life science, medtech and healthcare are highly regulated in general with specific requirements concerning manufacturing and distribution which differs from almost all other industries. The lawyers have extensive experience within a wide range of regulatory matters from applications and amendments, compliance with regulatory requirements, providing assistance in connection with third party audits and representing clients in relations with governmental authorities and other third parties.
