The Life Sciences Practice is composed of a dozen or so specialists experienced in pharmaceutical and biotechnology law, anti-monopoly law and constitutional law. We have many year’s experience in advising the pharmaceutical sector, covering aspects of key importance to sector firms, from clinical trials, registration, and marketing medicinal products through product manufacture, promotion, advertising and distribution, to protection of intellectual property rights to products. Our Practice also comprises lawyers who specialise in issues relating to, e.g. dietary supplements, foodstuffs for special nutritional purposes, and medical devices.
We advise both Polish and foreign pharmaceutical firms, pharmacies, pharmaceutical wholesalers and hospitals, and also businesses in the food, alcohol and tobacco sectors. Our clients include voivodship authorities, whom we are advising on the restructuring of the healthcare system. We also work with sector associations in the legislative consultation process, drawing up, e.g. opinions on whether bills comply with the constitution and acts of international law.
Our awareness of market practice enables us to render advisory that gives a high level of legal safety and that is also effective in business terms. Where legal risks are identified, we try to propose solutions that will not only mitigate these risks but will also achieve goals as near as possible to the client’s original intentions.
We have started a legal blog where we regularly comment on changes in the law in the pharmaceutical sector and we have the first website in Poland that provides legal support to pharmacies (https://apteki.dzp.pl) in their daily affairs.
