Who We Are
Dr. mr. Hanneke Later-Nijland
(LLM, PharmD, PhD)
Hanneke is the only lawyer-pharmacist with a PhD in the Netherlands. Therefore, she is a lawyer with an extraordinary, atypical background. Hanneke specialises in the EU and national regulatory life sciences law. She holds a PhD in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Previously, she was an inspector for Clinical Trials and Pharmacovigilance with the Inspectorate for Healthcare (IGJ).
This rare background gives her a unique perspective and understanding of the life sciences sector.
In her practice, Hanneke advises life sciences and healthcare clients and litigates on a wide range of issues. Areas of expertise cover marketing authorisations, reimbursement, compliance, pharmacovigilance, advertising issues, product liability, issues on the interface of IP and regulatory, and —finally — regulatory assistance in transactions. For the use of M&A or for the comfort of investors, Hanneke is able to provide tailor-made Transaction Regulatory Compliances prognosis reports.
Hanneke is a university lecturer in Leiden and she publishes frequently on regulatory life sciences issues, such as new European legislation and the impact of recent judgments in the sector.
Effective, distinct and pragmatic
