The life sciences sector is a vital contributor to Canada’s innovation economy, furthering research and developing the pharmaceuticals and medical devices necessary to improve health care both in our country and around the world. This is a highly regulated area, and regulatory scrutiny can put the pressure on innovators. Life sciences and health care companies operating in Canada can benefit from the experienced counsel at Alexander Holburn.

Despite the impressive achievements of Canadian life sciences companies, numerous challenges exist, including regulatory compliance, liability concerns, and financing. Clients look to the Life Sciences Team at Alexander Holburn to represent their interests throughout the life cycle of their company: from securing initial financing—from venture capital funds, angel investors, and banks—through to daily operations and mergers and acquisitions. Our lawyers work with private and public companies, from start-ups to publicly listed manufacturers and research and development companies.

As a multi-service firm, we are able to provide clients with comprehensive services to support their objectives. We provide strategic advice for a wide range of matters including:

  • Cannabis
