King & Spalding LLP’s team sits as part of a firm-wide group for life sciences regulatory law and provides advice at the intersection of food and pharmaceutical law and on regulatory issues in drug and medical devices law. The group also advises on purely food law matters, including health claims regulation. The team has longstanding experience providing compliance advice and is expanding its data protection practice due to the increased demand for GDPR-related advice. Practice head Ulf Grundmann’s highlights include acting for chemical manufacturer Kreussler in proceedings for the demarcation of drugs, cosmetics and medical devices, which included proceedings at the Federal Court of Justice, and representing the German homeopathic union DHU-Arzneimittel in competition law disputes concerning homeopathic products. Eckes-Granini, Pfizer Consumer Healthcare and biomo-vital are also clients.
