Food and Drug Regulatory and Litigation

Goodmans has been at the forefront of the food and drugs sector in Canada with industry-leading legal work.  Our lawyers expertly assist clients in the pharmaceutical industry with every aspect of their businesses, from regulatory advice and compliance to high-stakes litigation.  Over the course of decades, we have developed deep industry knowledge and ties that generate efficient service for our clients.  

When it comes to navigating the regulatory approval process for pharmaceuticals, no firm has more experience addressing and successfully challenging the decisions of Health Canada, including by way of judicial review.  After market approval, our lawyers have assisted pharmaceutical clients in high-stakes, “bet the company” challenges to regulatory decisions imperiling their ability to market their products in Canada.  

When regulatory decisions have caused our clients to suffer monetary damage, we have successfully litigated and recovered significant remedies from the government.

Given our deep understanding of the Canadian and international pharmaceutical markets, we also advise pharmaceutical clients regarding pricing regulations and best practices before the Patented Medicines Prices Review Board (PMPRB), including hearings before the PMPRB.  

Our lawyers are consistently recognized and recommended by leading industry publications.
