Horten’s Life Science & 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, real estate, financing, foundations, contracts, IT and personal data law. Based on one or more of these areas of expertise, Horten offers integrated advice within all areas of Life Science & Healthcare to individuals as well as start-up businesses, corporate entities, research institutions and public authorities

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 complex, 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 represents Danish and international clients in the fields of manufacturing, distribution and marketing of 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 healthcare professionals in many different fields including dentistry, pharmacy and medicine.
