Unique challenges for life science businesses

Long product development cycles, equity based financing, complex intellectual property issues, strategic alliances and a fast changing regulatory environment create unique legal challenges for life science companies. 

Our life sciences’ team is the largest practice group of this kind in Switzerland. We have supported numerous high-profile IPOs, mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, financing rounds and product developments.

Expert support throughout your development cycle

Our team focuses on regulatory matters, including compliance and administrative procedures. We support you at every stage, from initial start-up to ongoing development and eventual sale, merger or IPO.

Our life sciences team also advise on patent matters in the biotech and pharmaceutical sector. We regularly represent clients in litigation before the Swiss Patent Court and in arbitration cases.

“Thank you for the constructive and extremely focused work. It has been a pleasure working with VISCHER.”

Dr Simon Ittig, CEO and Co-Founder, T3 Pharmaceuticals AG
