Pharmaceutical industry

Class actions, complaints to the “public health” divisions of courts and professional associations, health sector-related disputes have significantly increased in recent years. Health actors now face an increased risk of prosecution in a complex and uncertain legal environment.

From offenses against individuals (manslaughter and unintentional injuries, endangerment, non-assistance) to breaches of probity (illegal taking of interest, influence peddling, corruption), our lawyers have a recognized expertise in health criminal law and in the management of conflicts of interest.          

Our partners’ recent experience in criminal law includes: 

  • co-counsel to the French Drugs Safety Agency (ANSM) during the landmark Mediator trial (biggest pharma law case in France);
  • counsel to pharmaceutical companies charged with industrial espionage;
  • counsel to health professionals before criminal courts and professional associations.
