Life Sciences

We act for companies and their investors across the industry, including in the pharmaceuticals, veterinary, diagnostics and healthcare sectors.

We’ve made a name for ourselves by working on some of the most high-profile transactions in life sciences in Romania in recent years. Our lawyers bring fresh thinking and new ideas to the services and advice they offer. They also work hard to tailor advice to the needs of individual clients, drawing on expertise across the full spectrum of legal issues, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity, commercial transactions, including strategic licensing and collaboration agreements, merger control, intellectual property (both contentious and non-contentious), capital markets, finance, regulatory and dispute resolution.
