Pharmaceutics and Healthcare


The pharmaceutical and healthcare industry is one of Kosta Legal’s key engagements. We provide legal support to our clients operating in industries including pharmaceuticals, medical services, medical products and equipment, cosmetics, and specialty food products.

Members of our Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Practice Group proactively provide tailored, comprehensive and practical advice to our clients based on their extensive experience, knowledge and fundamental understanding of the relevant industries. Our clients regularly engage us to provide them with expert advice during all operational stages, but we particularly focus on regulatory issues, sales, competition and intellectual property law matters, such as licensing, approvals and permits, trade regulations, price setting, advertising, labelling, trademarks and patents.

Our professionals also assist clients in conducting due diligence and internal investigations into their compliance with the company’s internal policies, including those covered under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act of 2010.
