Life Science Insurance & Risk Management

Life sciences companies face a number of challenges that are inherent to their business, from the importance of ensuring their products are safe, to protecting their earnings. Added to that, they face a range of changing and emerging risks, from increasing regulatory scrutiny to supply chain complexities, sector consolidation, increasing litigation and concerns over data integrity.

Underpinning these challenges is the need to protect your company’s reputation, especially in the age of social media. A product recall, cyber-attack, or a clinical trial that goes wrong could have a massive impact on your brand within a matter of days, or even hours.

JLT helps companies including pharmaceutical firms, research organisations, medical device manufacturers, and specialty chemical companies to identify and manage their risks and put in place effective risk financing solutions.
