Solution-backed approaches to FDA regulations

Providing comprehensive solutions to life science companies.

Medical Affairs

We can easily place ourselves in the shoes of healthcare providers and the challenges they face in receiving accurate clinical information and real-world outcomes in order to make sound medical decisions for their patients. We step into this emerging field with compliance-focused solutions and legal advice backed by a sound understanding of clinical practices and subject matter expertise for you to offer the best to your clients.

Clinical Trials

We have created global transparency programs for global pharmaceutical companies using a customized process addressing at least 6 different types of transparencies. Through personalized interventions, we help sponsors make informed decisions on disclosure and transparency. 

Promotional Compliance

The Kulkarni Law Firm helps confirm that external-facing promotional pieces released by life sciences companies are FDA compliant – based on existing laws, regulations, MAPPs, guidance, titled and untitled letters. As these laws are constantly updating with the emergence of new technologies and marketing avenues, adhering to these requirements can become challenging. This exemplifies the need for a trusted partner to navigate these legal terrains.
