Life Sciences 2017: Analysis

As ever, our legal analysis seeks to identify which law firms and which lawyers are the most highly regarded practitioners both by region and by type of life sciences law. We have split our research into four practice areas: transactional, patent litigation, product liability and regulatory. Europe and the United States once again emerge as the regions with the greatest concentration of top life sciences lawyers. However, while smaller in volume, Australia, China and Japan’s leading law firms also demonstrate their depth of expertise in the area, with numerous individuals recommended across all areas. 

Life Sciences 2017: Trends

Levels of activity within the life sciences market show no sign of abating, despite the economic uncertainty brought on by recent political events on both sides of the Atlantic. M&A and consolidation remains active and in regions where joined-up regulatory regimes are about to come into place, as in the European Union, regulatory and compliance law is robust. One of the reasons for such a buoyant market may be the successes that innovators have had recently, with several new biopharmaceutical products becoming available that seem likely to be lucrative regardless of the ups and downs of the market. This has culminated in a healthy year for life sciences, and for lawyers practising in all areas of the field.

Switzerland: Transport 2017

In this chapter, we recognise 34 of the country’s premier transport specialists. These featured lawyers excel in aviation, shipping and rail law, regularly handling financing, logistics, transactions, insurance and crisis management matters.
