Our deep industry experience covers the full range of digital health applications, from software-enabled medical devices, wellness products, and wearables, to AI-powered and data-driven patient care, drug discovery technologies or platforms, telehealth services, clinical trial management, and healthcare management systems.
Latham brings market-leading experience to negotiating strategic partnerships and alliances, joint ventures, licensing agreements, and corporate transactions in the digital health space. We advise on the full breadth of transactions, from vendor agreements to intellectual property and technology licensing, to venture equity and debt financings, M&A, and capital markets offerings. We also help clients negotiate and structure technology and data contracts to realize the maximum value of their data and IP assets, and secure licenses or rights to use data. Drawing from diverse experience in business-to-business and business-to-consumer digital health applications, we provide practical counsel on critical corporate transactions.
Regulatory Compliance & Marketing Authorizations
We help clients secure crucial marketing authorizations from regulators for cutting-edge products, and advise on compliance with a matrix of FDA, data privacy and healthcare regulatory requirements. Our team offers seasoned counsel on the most challenging issues, from tech-enabled global clinical trials to pre-market strategies and regulator engagement to post-market investigations, enforcement actions, and recalls.
Lawyers on our team have held prominent positions in US government agencies and Congress, and provide effective advocacy advice on FDA policy, legislative matters, and government affairs. Our team also skillfully guides clients through the cross-border regulatory and economic considerations of commercializing digital health technologies in Europe and other jurisdictions. Latham regulatory, litigation, and deal teams work together to navigate the regulatory aspects of corporate transactions, and to facilitate and defend market access.
