On 10 June LMG announced the winners of the European Life Sciences Awards. The DORDA Life Science Practice Group had previously been nominated by LMG in a total of eleven categories. On the day, DORDA Managing Partner and Head of the Life Science Practice Group Francine Brogyányi emerged as the winner and was named "Litigation & Enforcement Lawyer of the Year". The award, presented for the eighth time, thus honours her outstanding work in the field of unfair competition in the life sciences industry in Europe.
"I am particularly pleased that I received this award because I was short-listed with very renowned colleagues and have now been awarded in the field of competition law for the whole of Europe. I am honoured that not only our clients but also my peers appreciate the quality of our advice. That our work in the Life Sciences Practice Group reaches an international standard is also shown by the fact that we were nominated in eleven categories. The nominations of Andreas Seling (unfair competition) and Bernhard Heinzl (IP) as Rising Stars are particularly noteworthy. Thus, also the next generation of lawyers at DORDA will continue to have a strong focus on life sciences," says Francine Brogyányi, who has been head of the Life Sciences Practice Group since 2012 and has been Managing Partner of DORDA since 2019.
Francine Brogyányi recently also gave an insight into her work in DORDA's legal podcast "Clarity Talk on Air": https://www.dorda.at/en/podcast/race-coronavirus-vaccine
