FERRERE represents international, regional and local companies, leaders in the pharmaceuticals market. Thanks to the emphasis on specialization that characterizes the chemicals and pharmaceuticals team, clients use its services in strategic activities, including many companies who in Latin America tend not to put their trust in lawyers.

Obtaining authorizations, arranging representations and managing negotiations with regulators, approval and regulation of pharmaceutical specialties and therapeutic devices, and authorization and monitoring of phase-3 clinical testing are everyday matters for this practice. But also frequent are strategic planning of company mergers, acquisition of product lines, obtaining patents and maintaining patent rights. Support to international and local clients is constant in registration transfers, assignments of awards, and termination of distribution agreements. The chemicals and pharmaceuticals group’s attorneys coordinate with pharmaceutical chemists and specialists in regulatory areas, keeping their practice in step with the sector’s technological progress.

FERRERE addresses new trends, opportunities and regulatory threats. Its professionals coordinate efforts with company technical specialists, which is simple due to their deep knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry, beyond the legal aspects. That knowledge and the experience acquired also facilitate frequent collaboration with foreign attorneys specializing in the sector.
