There are significant commercial challenges for Irish biotechnology and medical device companies. From obtaining private equity and financing to bringing products from concept to the market. It is a challenging environment that requires outstanding commercial and legal advice as well as a commitment to meet regulatory demands. Whether it is a product, a process or even a therapy, without doubt your business will have to successfully deal with intellectual property issues, regulatory issues and reputational risks.

The types of challenges that Irish companies have faced over the last few years include, expiration of patents and associated generic challengers in the market, shareholder hostility due to low returns, increased Irish and European regulation, greater price competition for therapeutics and drugs and increasing costs relating to research and development.
