Our elite regulatory lawyers are experts in advising on Foods for Special Medical Purposes (FSMPs), whether you are a manufacturer, distributor or importer of FSMPs or looking to acquire or sell a FSMPs company or the FSMP division of a global group of companies.

We will assist you in the preparation of your dossiers to the MHRA and EMA for marketing authorisations for medicinal products, biotechnology products and drugs. We also advise on borderline products such as cosmetics, foods, FSMPs, food supplements and medical foods.
