Horten’s Life Sciences & Healthcare offering consists of an inter-disciplinary group of more than 30 lawyers with special expertise within IP, regulatory issues, M&A, litigation, employment law, IT and personal data law.

Based on one or more of these areas of expertise, Horten offers integrated advice within all areas of Life Sciences & Healthcare to individuals as well as start-up businesses, international corporations, research companies and municipal and regional administrations.

Medicinal products

For the last 20 years, Horten has worked closely together with the most important operators in the pharmaceutical area advising on a wide range of issues from IP rights to regulatory affairs in connection with international litigation, agreements and transactions.

Medical equipment

The medical equipment industry is still in rapid development, but because we have followed the industry closely for many years, we have gathered unique expertise advising on various types of medical equipment, not only delivery devices, but also mechanical equipment and complicated, integrated electronic products. Today, Horten advises a number of international clients within this special area.

Digital health

In recent years, we have seen that telemedicine and other IT-based (or IT-hybrid) solutions are significantly gaining ground, and we have from the beginning advised start-up businesses as well as established businesses within this complicated area, which requires coordination of core competencies within many different legal and practical fields.

Herbal medicinal products and medicinal cannabis

Horten advises Danish and international clients manufacturing, distributing and marketing herbal medicinal products, but also more recently medicinal cannabis, in relation to the special problems concerning the approval, marketing and sale of these products.


Our expertise within healthcare spans across several practice areas, and we advise clients from many different parts of the industry as well as private practice. We assist pharmaceutical companies and distributors, but also scientists and research companies, pharmacies and wholesalers, doctors, dentists and other therapists.
