Solicitors' practice areas

Life sciences

The life sciences sector combines a range of legal practice areas, demanding expert advice from lawyers with detailed knowledge of the relevant trends and innovations in areas including food, healthcare, MedTech, veterinary and biotechnology. Most solicitors in this area tend to specialise in either contentious (eg, patent and product liability) or non-contentious (eg, commercial and corporate) work. In addition to commercial and IP advice and litigation, lawyers will provide regulatory guidance on everything from the accurate labelling and marketing of drugs to competition law issues.
