Chambers & Partners Guide 2016
Jordi Faus, the best lawyer in the area of "Life Sciences" according to the Chambers & Partners Guide 2016
Since 2007, the Chambers & Partners Guide assesses the reputation and competence of thousands of lawyers in Europe on the basis of interviews that their investigation team carries out directly with clients and other lawyers.
This year, for the tenth time in a row, Faus & Moliner has been considered a leading firm in the area of pharmaceutical law in Spain.
The clients consulted have much appreciated the degree of specialisation of the firm, our industry knowledge, and our working methods, with direct and understandable messages, and proposing specific solutions within the legally available options. Our clients have also valued the promptness and efficiency of our services, emphasizing that we are probably the leading specialists in the regulation of the “life sciences” industry.
Jordi Faus has been considered as one of the “star individuals” practising law in Spain, a distinction that the Guide reserves to those who combine knowledge, creative solutions, and personal dedication to clients. Considered by the sources consulted as the best lawyer within the industry, the Guide emphasizes his knowledge, and his efficiency in terms both of time and cost.
The Guide also highlights the specialization of Xavier Moliner in the field of litigation, and his work in the areas of product liability and public procurement. Likewise, Juan Suárez deserves a mention for his activity on regulatory matters and advertising.
