A number of experts and advisors with extensive experience in the legal challenges facing the Life Science sector at home and abroad have teamed up to form this independent association DALILA. The purpose of the association is through public debate events, etc. to disseminate knowledge of legal issues in the Life Science sector. The association aims to create a forum that is unpolitical and independent of corporate interests, and which can help to ensure a high professional standard and increased cooperation between industry and its advisors, all to ensure the best possible conditions for Life Science companies in Denmark.
Anyone interested in legal issues in the Life Science sector in Denmark is welcome as a member of the association.
In connection with the establishment of the association, the association's chairman Søren Thor Jensen, Corporate Vice President of Novo Nordisk's legal department, said in a press release issued by the association on January 29, 2019: “The Life Science sector in Denmark is world-class. At the same time, it is a sector that is subject to a lot of regulation, among other things, to ensure that product safety is at the top. This presents a wide range of legal challenges.
We therefore see a clear need to form an independent association, which among other things. will host seminars and conferences on relevant topics for the Life Science sector. Through this we can, among other things, exchange experiences on legal matters and thereby maintain a strong legal environment that can support that Denmark will continue to be one of the leading countries in Life Science.
"It is therefore very gratifying that the Danish Life Science Law Association has now been established."
