Smith Moore Leatherwood's clinical research and biosciences team provides a wide range of services to our clients engaging in clinical research, product development, and the sales and marketing process. Our work with sponsors and sites, such as teaching hospitals, academic medical centers, physician groups, and research entities, including site management organizations, provides us with a balanced view of the needs of each. We also recognize the time sensitive nature of projects in the fast-paced arena of product development. We work closely with our clients to ensure that legal review does not unnecessarily hamper the process.
In addition to assisting our clients in bringing products to market, we also help our clients maintain regulatory compliance and assure that their interests are protected so their time and energy can be concentrated on the advancement of medical knowledge. For example, we routinely advise clinical research and bioscience clients on:
- Medicare billing compliance
- Fraud and abuse issues
- FDA regulations
- Compliance with the PhRMA and AdvaMed codes of ethics and other industry guidance
- Intellectual property protection
- Tax-exempt status issues
- Protection of human subjects and related privacy issues.
Our involvement with medical research activities is rewarding because it allows us to help create real health care benefits. For more information on our clinical research and biosciences practice, please contact a member of our team.
