You are currently viewing Dentons' global capabilities in Health Care. To view regional capabilities please select below:
Global expenditures on health care are approaching seven trillion US dollars a year, or roughly 10 percent of the world’s gross domestic product. More than 70 percent of these expenditures occur in North America and Europe alone. Not surprisingly, opportunities are immense and growing in the health and life sciences industry, for businesses that include: pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, research and development organizations, information technology companies, providers, clinicians, insurers and entrepreneurs of every stripe.
These opportunities are local, national and global. A 100-bed community hospital in Kansas City wants to form a joint venture for an ambulatory surgery center with 11 cardiologists from St. Louis. A children’s hospital in Abu Dhabi wants to partner with a teaching hospital in Paris. A device manufacturer headquartered in Bonn wishes to market its products in Hong Kong. A Russian pharmaceutical company seeks approval from the US Food and Drug Administration for a new anti-coagulant. An e-health company headquartered in Barcelona wants to license its health records software to an IT consultant in Kampala. The list may be long, but the number of law firms that can handle this range of matters is not.
The firm must have a presence, on the ground and around the world. The firm must have a deep bench of lawyers who have spent decades immersed in the health and life sciences sector, helping organizations navigate continuously evolving political, regulatory and economic landscapes. The firm must understand each jurisdiction’s health care delivery system—from manufacturer to distributor to provider to patient to payor to policy maker—and the firm must be able to provide each of these players with the full range of strategic transactional, regulatory and dispute resolution counseling services.
With offices in 79 locations in 52 countries across four continents, and with more than 100 lawyers, consultants and policy professionals who have spent their entire professional careers exclusively counseling health care life sciences organizations, Dentons is proud to be that firm.

As the first of the baby boomers have reached retirement age, the greatest financial threat to the American middle class is silently waiting for them. Most are unprepared for what actuaries call “longevity risk.” The real life word for it is gambling. Half of retirees will run out of money and outlive their resources. Social Security, pensions, and annuities will not be sufficient to meet the needs of millions of seniors. Half of all Americans who reach 65 today will need substantial assistance in the necessities of daily living, from getting out of bed in the morning to eating and personal hygiene. The gamble is that you will not be among those who need assistance nor run out of money. Read more
