• Life Sciences

The life sciences sector in Japan combines a variety of areas such as healthcare, medical devices, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals.  Life sciences companies face unique, complex, and demanding challenges in a sector which is high-paced, innovative, and global.  Our team of life sciences lawyers can provide expert advice on complying with the ever-changing regulatory landscape as well as dealing with issues which involve licensing and permits, licenses, intellectual property, data, clinical research, reimbursement, product advertisements, and corporate governance of healthcare companies.

Our life sciences lawyers are also experienced in corporate and commercial transactions, and can therefore advise on unique and critical issues which arise in life science-related M&A, manufacturing, distribution, and supply transactions.  We also work hand-in-hand with our patent attorneys to provide IP-related advice on the licensing, prosecution, and litigation of patents, trademarks, and designs for our life sciences clients.
