Italy Legal Focus

Italy Legal Focus is an Italian independent law firm tracing back to three decades ago.  We are a group of talented and motivated attorneys committed to providing high quality services in the most efficient and timely fashion.  We are big enough to be able to provide a full range of legal services, yet still small enough to be able to offer a personal, tailored and partner-led service. Our life science practice can be described as follows:

Clients and Industries  We understand the needs of a company researching, financing, developing, manufacturing, commercializing and testing new and technically advanced medicinal or medical products by giving an excellent legal support at every stage.  Our life sciences clients range from pharmaceutical companies to medical device manufacturers, biotechnology and nanotechnology companies, CROs, medical insurers and e-health technology providers.  We offer tailored services to large multinational groups, as well as to smaller enterprises or start-up ventures.

360° Regulatory Assistance  We advise on regulatory requirements connected to a wide variety of issues, such as the commercialization of pharmaceutical products and medical devices, conduct of clinical trials, promotional activities for pharmaceutical products and medical devices, as well as any relating data protection issues.  We assist clients in the drafting and execution of compliance programs and organizational models relating to corporate liability pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 231 of 2001, also by acting as external members of their Compliance Committees.

Contracts and Corporate  We are especially skilled in drafting and negotiating licensing and partnering agreements, research and development agreements, joint ventures arrangements, clinical trials agreements, co-promotion and co-marketing agreements.  We know the rules applicable to agreements with health care professionals and institutions and the pitfalls to avoid.  We also advise life science clients in corporate transactions such as acquisitions, mergers, investment and financing agreements, joint ventures and shareholders agreements, as well as any relating service (due diligence investigations, drafting of corporate resolutions, etc.).

Litigation  We defend lawsuits on product liability and offer strategic assistance in complex operations for the recall of products already on the market.  We also advise clients with respect to their public procurement issues and are able to litigate public procurement matters before administrative courts.
