  • Law Comparison Guide
    • Ropes & Gray’s local law compendium aids clients in operating in accordance with local laws as part of their global compliance programs. It is comprised of easy-to-use summaries of country-specific health care laws, regulations and industry codes spanning the jurisdictions where pharmaceutical and medical device companies operate.

      Through our strong relationships with trusted local counsel, we were able to develop this compendium using country-specific questionnaires that analyze the legal and regulatory regimes governing, and prevalent industry groups influencing, industry interactions with health care professionals in each region, geography and jurisdiction. Together with our local counsel partners, we have developed guides for the following regions: Asia, Europe and North & South America. For more information on this publication, please click here.
