Our Life Sciences practice consists of highly specialized lawyers, who, drawing on the firm’s expertise across regulated industries, public law and corporate/M&A, guide multinational and domestic clients through regulatory compliance, transactions and disputes, among other life sciences and healthcare matters.

We have significant experience offering clients from the life sciences industry a comprehensive and fully integrated approach. We partner with our regular clients –mostly global companies doing business in Peru– to resolve a wide range of issues, such as pharmaceutical and sanitary regulation for commercial activities across several industries, that involve chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and sanitary products (such as disinfectants or care products), food and beverages, and medical devices. Our practice also focuses on representing companies before government agencies for permitting or for challenging before courts unfavorable administrative decisions.
