Spanning across biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and medical technology, the Australian Life Sciences sector is highly regulated, capital intensive and reliant on funding to nurture its growth. With increasing vaccine production capacity, growing capabilities in medical products and technologies, and the sector’s ability to commercialise and manufacture – it’s an industry with abundant opportunities, but with these opportunities comes complex risks and the need for strong insurance partners to help companies mitigate those risks. 

Our insurance and cyber expertise, coupled with a deep understanding of the healthcare, life science, pharmaceutical and education sectors, means our team is well placed to provide specialist legal advice on claims affecting manufacturers and distributors of medicines, supplements and medical devices, the medical facilities and universities that conduct the testing and clinical trials as well as the medical professionals that work with the patients to prescribe medicines and implant the devices.

We have represented the insurers for and worked with hundreds of registered healthcare practitioners, as well as alternative therapists and managers in the health industry. We have represented hospitals, health clinics, universities, medical training facilities, aged care and respite facilities, together with allied medical service providers such as radiology, nuclear medicine and pathology practices in defence of claims and managing cyber breach response.
