Simon-Kucher advises pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients on their most challenging strategic priorities with a focus on four core areas: strategy, marketing, sales and pricing/market access. We have helped clients:

  • Of all sizes and experience, from the largest players in the industry to an ever expanding number of companies commercializing their first products
  • At any stage of the product lifecycle, from early stage asset prioritization to Phase II/III planning; and from launch strategy readiness through life cycle management and loss of exclusivity planning
  • In over 60 countries around the world, our substantial global footprint allows us to support our clients’ success in the big seven markets (the USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, and Japan) to numerous important growth markets (Brazil, China, south east Asia and many others)
  • Across the entire customer network, we can give pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies actionable insights, strategy and advice to navigate the complex interactions between their most important customers, including (but not limited to): payers, hospitals/institutions, physicians, pharmacists, patients, and distributors
  • Both develop strategy and build capabilities, we partner with our clients to both advance their strategic thinking and to enable world-class performance
