We're delighted to announce that Fieldfisher's pan-European Life Sciences sector group have mobilised to show support for life science companies contributing efforts towards global pandemic COVID-19.  
We are all navigating uncharted waters as business and society faces up to the impact of COVID-19.  We very much hope you and your loved ones remain in good health. 

 Please be assured that Fieldfisher is continuing to work with clients to navigate COVID-19 related issues and on business as usual needs.  Do get in touch with us if you would like to talk anything through.


In commitment to the sector and using the group's strength of its international expertise in the life science sector, our European life sciences team have launched an initiative to assist businesses contributing efforts towards the fight against COVID-19.
 
Our experts will be providing legal assistance pro bono to companies involved in the fight against COVID-19 including repurposing medicines, vaccine development, regulation of fast track medical devices and diagnostics.  In the UK, this initiative is being led by Janita Good, Head of the UK Fieldfisher Life Sciences sector group.
 
Commenting on the initiative Janita Good said:
 
"Right now the world is looking at the life sciences sector for the answer to stabilise and hopefully eradicate COVID-19. Many other businesses are also entering into completely new territory to use their resources to assist where they can.
 
"At Fieldfisher, we want to reinforce our commitment to not only to the life sciences sector but also to the fight against COVID-19, so we've mobilised as a sector to provide initial legal assistance to the wide range of businesses jumping on board to make a difference.
 
"These are unprecedented times, but we hope to do what we can to inspire and support businesses who can contribute to do so"
