Friday, August 03, 2018 @ 8:55 AM | By John Chunn


Alice Tseng is a new partner in Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh’s life sciences practice group and will work out of the firm’s Toronto office.

Recognized as one of Canada’s leading lawyers for life sciences, regulatory, advertising and marketing law, Tseng advises clients in the pharmaceutical, cannabis, food, medical device and cosmetic industries. She has been practising for over two decades, and she is qualified as a pharmacist, lawyer and patent agent.

Tseng’s expertise in the pharmaceutical industry includes biologics, controlled drugs and substances, immunotherapy, orphan drugs, vaccines, OTC drugs and natural health products.

In her life sciences practice, Tseng advises clients on a wide range of regulatory and health care compliance matters including: reimbursement and pricing, product safety, privacy, as well as federal and provincial regulatory matters.

She complements this through her advertising and marketing practice, advising clients in highly regulated industries on a variety of matters including social media initiatives, trade disputes, and marketing programs for patients and healthcare professionals.

“Alice is one of the leading life sciences and regulatory lawyers in Canada. She brings a deep understanding of the regulatory environment in Canada to the firm and the issues for both traditional industries like pharmaceuticals and emerging players such as those in the cannabis industry. Alice is laser focused and dedicated to helping her clients navigate complex legal issues and develops strategies for them to succeed,” said Steven Garland, managing partner.
