In a tight regulatory environment, the issues our clients face vary from regulatory questions such as the regulations concerning approval of medicines (marketing authorization), medical device incident reporting and the impact of the new Medical Device Regulation through questions related to clinical studies, protection of IPR/patents, assistance and negotiation of R&D agreements and commercial contracts, product liability issues, assistance related to public procurement and M&A assistance.
