Our dedication to and focus on the life sciences and healthcare industries has resulted in a broad recognition as go-to full-service advisor in Belgium, the Netherlands and
Luxembourg - the Benelux – in the life sciences and healthcare industry; from top notch regulatory advice, to advising on venture capital rounds, IPOs and the most complex Corporate M&A deals, financings, restructurings, and representing clients in high end IP and product liability litigation.
Other services include advice on sector specific competition law issues, advertising regulations, data protection, insurance policies and government affairs. We also assist our life sciences clients on a broad range of areas of expertise relevant to their business, including employment law and tax law. Of course, where needed, we also represent them before the courts in the Benelux.
Tailor made services
Our experience and full-service approach enable us to tailor our services to meet the needs our clients have at all times across our jurisdictions. Outside the Benelux, we work together with top firms to enable a seamless delivery of solutions in all cross-border matters.

Our Life Sciences team
We advise national and international clients in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical devices sectors, from start-ups to market leaders. We act both behind the scenes and in court where necessary.

We are a co-founder of the Belgian Master Class in Biotechnology, run by the Institute of Pharmaceutical Business Administration. Our lawyers publish and speak regularly on such subjects as handling regulation, competition, IP and financing in the pharmaceutical, biotechnical and medical devices sectors.
NautaDutilh's Life Sciences team takes a holistic approach and is composed of lawyers with a wide range of expertises, including regulatory, IP, public procurement, privacy, competition, M&A and finance specialists. We provide the full range of advisory, litigation and transactional services that enable life sciences and healthcare companies to excel throughout their life cycle.
