Former Taylor Wessing Partner and Co-Head of the firm's CEE Life Sciences practice Barbora Dubanska has established Dubanska & Co. in Prague, a boutique law firm specializing in life sciences, biotech, FMCG, and digital.

Dubanska focuses on pharmaceutical, regulatory, consumer, and antitrust law while working for clients in the life sciences, FMCG, and TMT/IP sectors.

Before joining Taylor Wessing (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on October 09, 2019), Dubanska was the Head of Legal at Novartis Oncology for three years. Prior to that, she spent five years as Head of CEE Competition with CMS, during which time she was seconded to Amazon for almost three. Even earlier, she was a Senior Lawyer with Weinhold Legal for two years and a Lawyer with Clifford Chance for four and a half.  

“I felt I could be more impactful in a specialized law firm – to focus on what I feel is important, including working with patient organizations and providing input on the ethical ramifications of medical technology development,” Dubanska commented. “I was able to choose the people I will work with. We have a great team of professionals, all focusing on different areas of healthcare, from data and how we use it, to medical devices, to IT integration and the personal data protection aspects of life sciences. With a decreasing number of medical professionals and an aging population, we see telemedicine as the future.”

“We’re already very busy and more requests are coming in. We will remain a boutique/specialized law firm, but look to slowly increase our team going forward, all the while keeping true to our DNA,” she said of Dubanska & Co's plans for the future.
