Drugs research and trials
Our lawyers advise on drug trial agreements and the related protocols in all areas of research and trial, including psychiatric drugs, gynaecological drugs, drugs for the control of epilepsy and drugs intended for the treatment of paediatric patients.
We have considerable experience advising on the issues that arise from clinical drug trials, such as the ethical obligations to obtain informed consent from the subjects of the trial.
Our commercial lawyers are available to advise on the financial aspects of drug trials including obtaining indemnities from the commercial body sponsoring the trials, the intellectual property implications for the parties to the agreement and the likely enforceability of indemnities.
We also advise on the risk management aspects of clinical pathways and protocols.
