Life Sciences & Healthcare

Fırat – İzgi provides legal services on regulatory, product liability, transactional and all kinds of litigation relevant to the life sciences sector.

The team has a deep rooted life sciences industry experience, leveraging its collective experience to assist innovators at every stage – from start-ups to mature companies — within the rapidly-changing legal and commercial environment of the life sciences industry. As a team with a background and industry experience in life sciences, we assist clients with regard to policy issues, clinical development and trials, approval to sales and marketing, pricing, post-marketing claims of product liability, compliance, anti-trust, commercial transactions (including but not limited to manufacturing, outsourcing, and product distribution, clinical trials, licensing agreements and transactions) and related litigation. The firm also represents clients before the public bodies where necessary.

We assist our clients to navigate and engage in the political process on important life sciences issues. We provide services to our clients for them to develop and implement better strategies to market and protect their innovations in a growing life sciences marketplace.  We have long advised on the marketing of so-called ‘borderline’ products – those foods, food supplements, herbal products and cosmetics etc. which are not licensed medicinal products but are marketed as having certain qualities related to health and well-being. Our work relates to the regulation of the marketing of these products, including the health claims which may be made in relation to such products. We do not advise on the formulation or labelling of individual products, but have relationships with specialist consultancies which we would recommend for this purpose.
