Growing faster than the UK economy as a whole, the life sciences industry is high risk, heavily regulated and legally complex.

The challenges and opportunities facing the UK life sciences industry are greater than ever with rising costs of R&D, products coming off patent, demand for greater shareholder return and increased government regulation beyond core safety issues. Specialist advisers are required to maximise the potential of new or existing technologies.
