The Life Sciences team provides legal services within all areas of the life sciences sector and has, unlike many other legal advisors, practical experience of the sector. Therefore, we have a profound understanding of your needs and the challenges you face within your business. Among our clients are Swedish and international companies and organizations, to whom we on a regular basis provide advice in relation to both Swedish and international matters.
Contracts for the research industry
We can assist you with contracts for research and development, clinical trials and non- interventional studies, manufacturing as well as other contracts necessary for the conducting of research projects.
Within the health care sector and especially with regard to pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, most business activities are governed by complex regulations. We continuously work with the regulations that govern your business and are therefore well aware of the regulatory issues your company faces, both prior to initiating the work required to receive a Swedish marketing authorization for the product and until the day of patent expiry and beyond.
For pharmaceutical and other products prescribed in an out-patient setting, a government agency decides the price and whether or not the product will be reimbursed by public funds. We can help you with applications for price and reimbursement and can also assist you with appeals of reimbursement decisions. We are also able to provide you with on-going advice on distribution and price setting.
We have extensive experience from helping companies with matters concerning public procurement in relation to the life sciences sector. We provide on-going advice during procurement procedures and assist in court proceedings.
Personal data, patient data and bio banks
We have extensive practical experience and knowledge regarding issues on processing of personal data with regard to clinical trials and non-interventional studies, processing of patient data, genetic testing, the keeping of bio banks, agreement structures and international flows of personal data.
