Solicitors in Market Harborough

Pharmaceuticals Solicitors & Pharma Solicitors & Pharmacy Solicitors

 

We are a modern and progressive pharmaceuticals law firm and we operate a new legal services business model, which combines the best aspects of a traditional law firm, with cutting edge developments in the modern provision of legal services.

 

What differentiates us from most traditional solicitors practises is that we operate a hybrid legal services business model. This means that in addition to employing lawyers we also appoint consultant solicitors who deliver legal services on our behalf. Many of our consultant solicitors work remotely from low cost premises and using the latest IT infrastructure deliver fast, effective and efficient legal services.    

 

Our business model has a very low cost base. With the exception of our administrative headquarters we only use serviced offices for basic needs such as telephone answering or mail receipt. Any additional fees for using meeting rooms are only incurred, as and when, we use the rooms. Where possible we pass these cost savings back to our clients, in the form of costs effective fee rates. We do not incur the significant cost overheads, including expensive premises, of more traditional law firms.

 

We have a team of highly experienced pharma solicitors who have the expertise to advise pharmaceutical clients on a wide variety of pharmaceutical legal matters including the development, protection, exploitation and enforcement of technology, intellectual property and/or pharmaceutical products.

 

Our pharmacy lawyers are able to combine technical, commercial and intellectual property knowledge of the pharmaceutical and pharmacy sectors, with specialist legal expertise to provide comprehensive legal advice on a wide range of pharma matters including creative solutions to any problems.

 

We provide sophisticated legal advice to pharmaceutical clients wishing to create and protect new pharma products, exploit pharmaceutical products or to raise capital and finance in order to develop their business.
