At about 10% of Australian GDP, the health industry is a cornerstone of the Australian economy and our way of life. Due to the size of the industry, all major law firms, including HWL Ebsworth, do generic health industry work – M&A for the health industry, property for the health industry etc. Surprisingly, few firms specialise in health.
HWL Ebsworth is one of the few major Australian law firms with a genuine long term industry-focussed commitment to providing legal services to the health and life sciences industries.
Our national health and life sciences team members understand the economic, cultural, political and ethical drivers for success in the healthcare industry. We recognise the market pressures affecting the industry including the complex regulatory and funding environment, the challenges of maintaining clinical standards, workforce pressures, and competition issues.
In the latest edition of Best Lawyers™ Australia, HWL Ebsworth had ten partners recognised in the area of Health and Aged Care Law, placing HWL Ebsworth as the top firm in the country for this area of law, as well as recognition in the field of Life Sciences.
