Health and life sciences

Health is a traditionally high-priority sector on the agendas of governments and other competent executive bodies in various countries and a central issue in every family life. Demand for better health care, wellbeing, and quality of life requires recurrent investment in people, infrastructure, equipment, and other resources.

The health sector is regulated and multifaceted, covering, among others, the policies and activities of the States and other public entities and regulators, hospitals (public, private and PPP), the pharmaceutical industry and pharmacies, health centers, specialized clinics, research activity in laboratories, non-profit agents and the growing food supplements and equivalent products industry.

Life sciences, linked not only to health but also to the environment, have gained increasing relevance in strategies, priorities and political, business and investment decisions that are closely associated with fighting the climate threat and the sustainability of the planet. For all the above, initiatives, research, investments, and innovations in this sector have also been remarkable.

At RRP Advogados, we would not be able to keep up with our clients in these sectors without a truly multidisciplinary and experienced team. We have therefore developed a group with extensive experience in these sectors that allows us to deal, among others, with licensing and regulatory issues, industrial or labor property issues, or to support complex acquisition, restructuring or financing operations.

We also have a dedicated, globally integrated internal team working on issues and developing specific expertise in ESG.

Integration into an international network also allows us to provide the most varied legal and labor advice services in an integrated way and to truly benefit from know-how on a global scale.
