Biotechnology & Life Sciences
We have extensive experience of working with the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and life sciences sector

PLMR has extensive experience of working with the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and life sciences sectors.

The company considers itself the UK’s leading public affairs company in the bioscience sector and PLMR team members have been advising the UK’s BioIndustry Association and its Member companies since 1999. PLMR has also been very active in the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, advising the British Pharmaceutical Industry, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, the Biosciences Federation, the Laboratory Animal Science Association, the Coalition for Medical Progress (as was) and Understanding
Animal Research.

Our work for the drug discovery industry has included lobbying the UK Government on vaccine procurement, crisis management counsel during the fall out from the Northwick Park drug trials and helping to coordinate both the Single Piece of Legislation Coalition – which led to the introduction of new, specific legislation to deal with animal rights extremism against those conducting legitimate medical research, associated organisations and service providers – and it’s successor, the Better Regulation Coalition, which involved engaging with Government at a Ministerial level to reform the administration of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986.

Following the coming to power of the Coalition, the ongoing pressure on public finances and the continuing lack of liquidity for growing and emerging companies, the challenges for the life sciences sector have never been greater. Quality public affairs advice and good PR has never been more important and we understand that because we have been working in the sector for over a decade.
