Making sense of complex regulatory environments
Our healthcare and life sciences regulatory team regularly interfaces with state and local government agencies on a wide variety of legislative and regulatory matters affecting the life sciences. We strive to gain an understanding of our pharmaceutical and medical device clients’ business including their particular strengths and vulnerabilities to state regulation, and in the process are able to effectively manage local lobbying and regulatory initiatives on our clients’ behalf.
Many of our lawyers and policy specialists have worked in healthcare regulatory agencies and legislative committees on both the state and federal levels, and in the process have developed first-hand knowledge of the political intricacies of policymaking affecting the pharmaceutical industry. While some of our attorneys are registered as federal and state lobbyists, we regularly work alongside lobbyists and public affairs professionals in the development and implementation of state based regulatory and legislative initiatives on behalf of our pharmaceutical clients. Our strengths lie in a collaborative approach to the achievement of our clients’ legislative and regulatory aims.
