Global Healthcare

Innovation. Expansion. Growth.

The pharmaceuticals and healthcare business is becoming increasingly complex. Industry players worldwide face growing competition — and tougher regulation. 

At Baker & McKenzie, our broad experience and sophisticated understanding of the global pharmaceuticals market put us in a unique position to fluently help you navigate risks, realize opportunities, and stay ahead of the innovation curve. Our firm was an active participant in the internationalization of the pharmaceutical industry more than 50 years ago. And we are among the first firms to provide focused pharmaceutical industry advice.

With more than 450 seasoned industry lawyers operating out of a network that spans 47 countries — including 10 of the largest pharmaceutical markets in the world — we can provide innovative advice on pipeline and geographic expansions, monitor industry trends and changes, and execute cross-border mergers, acquisitions and reorganizations.  We have a global team in place to help ensure your patents and other intellectual assets are protected and enforced. And our world leading Tax, Employment, and Dispute Resolution practices can give you integrated, cost-effective solutions on all related issues.
