LEADERSHIP: Nina M. Gussack

For more than 50 years, Pepper Hamilton LLP has helped clients across the health sciences spectrum – from discovery of new therapies to delivery of patient care – achieve their business goals and overcome challenges.

In today’s complex and constantly evolving health sciences ecosystem, clients not only need skilled lawyers – they need lawyers who grasp the complexities and nuances of issues across the continuum of health care services and life sciences. They need lawyers who understand scientific research, intellectual property, regulatory compliance, structuring and completing transactions, and dispute avoidance and resolution. They need lawyers who know and work with key players throughout the health sciences spectrum – innovative biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device developers and manufacturers; physicians, hospitals and other health care providers; federal and state government regulatory and enforcement agencies; Medicare/Medicaid and private payors; and all members of the health care supply chain.

That’s what Pepper’s Health Sciences Department delivers. Our Health Sciences Department includes more than 110 lawyers devoted to helping health sciences clients succeed. Pepper’s Health Sciences lawyers have collaborated with each other and with clients to achieve remarkable successes – development and protection of new life-saving therapies, structuring and completing transformative business combinations and alliances, compliance with ever-shifting government regulations and enforcement actions, and defeating many of the most massive and complex litigation threats to face any business. Our lawyers understand the impact our advice and counsel in one area will have in other aspects of your business – and on other members of the health sciences ecosystem. 

Our Health Sciences experience is broad and deep. Key areas of our practice include:
