To remain successful, medical device companies are seeking new strategies. Acquisitions, alliances and licensing are supplementing and often replacing in-house discovery and development. Outsourcing, from product manufacture to clinical trials, is helping to improve financial performance, accelerate time to market and control costs.

Our healthcare and life sciences lawyers have been advising researchers, producers, distributors and regulators in the medical devices industry for more than five decades, helping them manage their businesses while pursuing innovation. We work across borders and practice areas to provide comprehensive advice on research and development, commercial agreements, intellectual property rights, tax planning and trade law. We also advise leading pharmaceutical and medical device companies on restructurings, from selling, acquiring and spinning off assets to turnarounds and settlements, as well as capital raising.
