The biotech and pharma sector often involves researchers and companies working together to bring discoveries and drugs to the market. When this happens, they require agreements that lay out what all sides have to do. Our lawyers have experience establishing marketing agreements, commercialisation licences, collaboration and research agreements, joint ventures and term sheets, memorandums of understanding and heads of agreement.
The biotech and pharma sector is highly regulated. Our team help clients to navigate laws and regulators such as the Therapeutic Goods Administration. We assist on issues such as labelling, approvals for therapeutic and non-therapeutic goods, medical devices and clinical trials.
Our lawyers have extensive experience helping biotech companies to raise funds by listing on the share market through an initial public offering. They can also advise on raising funds through private equity and angel investors, as well as applying for funding grants.
We advise on the conduct of clinical trials, including sponsorship arrangements, compliance with HREC (human research ethics committee) rules, investigator led trials, and trial participant issues such as privacy.
Our Intellectual Property team can assist with protecting your valuable intellectual property.
