Rödl & Partner supports PharmaLex in merger with Regulis Consulting


Birmingham (United Kingdom), August 2020: Rödl & Partner advised the PharmaLex Group, a renowned consulting and services company, on its merger with Regulis Consulting Limited in the UK.


The merger with Regulis enables PharmaLex to further expand its services in the area of drug registration and safety. While the company operates internationally, it is committed to offering its broad portfolio at a local level. The strengthening of the existing UK team with experts in regulatory affairs, pharmacovigilance and quality assurance represents an important milestone in the company's regional presence. For Regulis, the merger opens up access to an international network of experts.


"The merger of PharmaLex and Regulis offers enormous potential for our complementary customer base and will further contribute to the successful development of our significant operations and business in the UK", said Jon Jeffery, Managing Director of PharmaLex UK.


Kim Wharton, Managing Director of Regulis, commented, “Our services in Regulatory Affairs, Pharmacovigilance and Quality Assurance align perfectly within the PharmaLex portfolio. Becoming part of a larger organisation with an excellent reputation and significant global footprint is an exciting step for Regulis.” PharmaLex was comprehensively advised on the transaction by a multidisciplinary cross-border M&A team from Rödl & Partner in Germany and the UK. Overall project management was provided by partners Jan Eberhardt and Jochen Reis. The advice focused on a complete legal, financial and tax due diligence as well as the contractual design of the purchase of Regulis shares.
