Subscribe Fasken


The lawyers at Fasken work with clients throughout the product life cycle and at every level of involvement. We have the scientific backgrounds and respected experience to provide strategic advice in almost any situation where it is needed.

By collaborating with colleagues who know the specific regulatory, marketing, intellectual property, competition, tax, litigation and business law matters unique to life sciences, we create multi-disciplinary solutions that protect client interests as their products move from conception to consumer or clinical use.


Our clients range from start-up biotech companies to the biggest pharmaceutical. We also work with clients from the  medical devices, natural health product (NHP), cosmetic, cannabis, veterinary, and human tissues. We help all life sciences industry stakeholders, including manufacturers, distributors, hospitals, pharmacies, retailers, academic and financial institutions and third-party research organizations.


Your team at Fasken includes lawyers with advance degrees in pharmaceutical sciences, clinical pharmacology, toxicology and genetics with a strong network of life sciences experts in 47 countries across the globe. We are committed to leadership in life sciences law; we write the leading guide to legal and regulatory regimes governing the manufacture and sale of drugs, medical devices and cosmetics in Canada and give frequent presentations to client organizations and associations. We’ve also been honored by respected organizations including Chambers, LMG Life Sciences, Who’s Who Legal, among others for innovative work year after year.
