Traversing an extremely complex regulatory landscape

With the dual objective of caring for its 1.3 billion (and counting) people, and providing the world with a continuous supply of essential drugs, Indian laws have placed special focus on drug price control, regulatory approvals, safety and efficacy issues, approval of biosimilars, import-export of drugs and ingredients, drug marketing, clinical trials and hospital operations.

Be it setting up or acquiring a drug manufacturing facility, importing specialised ingredients to manufacture health and beauty products, conducting clinical / bioequivalence / bioavailability trials or simply marketing nutraceuticals, supplements or health foods – there are multiple legal and business considerations unique to India. Our practice specialists are here to guide our clients through every nuance of the law and compliances thereunder.
