Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals

Medicines and medical, healthcare and beauty products are part of vital daily needs for billions of people, with thousands of companies involved in their development, production and distribution.

Goltsblat BLP / Berwin Leighton Paisner specialists provide comprehensive legal support for both standalone projects and routine operations of pharmaceutical companies, manufacturers of medical devices and equipment, healthcare products and  cosmetics, pharmacy chains and retailers.

In the past year, our firm has invested considerably in developing a firm-wide healthcare and  pharmaceuticals practice with real strength and depth. Leveraging off the substantial existing client base in this sector and a range of experience spanning several years, the new dedicated healthcare practice has been extremely successful in coordinating different workstreams and using key individuals’ sectoral understanding to interlink such expertise with other areas of specialisation within the firm. New areas of expertise have also been developed, including specific aspects of state regulation of pharmaceutical and medical companies. Healthcare is now an integral part of BLP’s strategy and is fast becoming highly relevant to a number of practice areas across the firm.

This depth in field has enabled the firm to take its healthcare expertise to an international level, resulting in major instructions from key market players.

Goltsblat BLP clients involved in the healthcare sector include major international producers of medications, medical devices and equipment and manufacturers of healthcare products and cosmetics. Internationally, Berwin Leighton Paisner advises NHS Trusts and government bodies, financial  institutions, investment consortia, medical suppliers and independent sector treatment centres (ISTCs) and residential care homes.

We have represented both the public and private sectors on some of the earliest, high profile healthcare pilot projects and have a detailed understanding of the readily accepted market positions that we see today. Our experience of acting extensively for both public and private clients means that we understand the differing key aims, objectives and constraints of both sectors.

Many of our specialist lawyers have worked in the industry for a number of years and offer clients a detailed understanding of the sector, combined with integrated and expert advice on the law.
