Healthcare & Life Sciences

The combined magnitude of our wide array of practice areas enables us to provide holistic support to entities operating in the industry.

Overview

In recent times, few sectors have changed as much as perhaps healthcare has.

Growth of corporatized hospitals and chains, the emergence of PE firm-backed primary care providing “family physicians”, use of information technology to automate various hospital processes and protocols, use of technology to improve quality of care etc., are all examples of this transformation.

 

We assist hospitals, diagnostic centers, pathology laboratories etc. on various corporate and commercial matters as well as litigation. Life Sciences companies (including pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies) may also be viewed as part of the larger “health and wellness” ecosystem. For companies driven by basic research, patenting their research and products and enforcing the IPR is critical. And because R&D is expensive, many are using crowdsourcing techniques to solve specific problems. All this needs iron-clad agreements that can protect IPR. Our IP team includes people with expertise in pharmaceutical, chemistry and biotechnology patent work in India and abroad.

We advise and assist in a range of IP matters such as preparation for patentability, freedom-to-operate, infringement and validity opinions and opposition/ appeal/infringement/ revocation proceedings specific to the life sciences sector.

We advise and assist pharmaceutical manufacturing plants with real estate matters including finding suitable alternative locations and obtaining the requisite approvals. In addition to advising on corporate, commercial and employment law related matters, we assist in M&A and corporate restructuring work as well.
