From product safety to breakthrough health discoveries, organizations working in the dynamic life sciences industry face a wide range of challenges and opportunities. From litigation and the actions of regulators posing a financial and reputational risk, to successful challenges to patents and other forms of intellectual property potentially undermining a firm’s core product and source of revenue. At the same time, insurers are increasingly restricting product liability insurance cover for life sciences companies.
