About LS Solutions
LS Solutions is a consulting firm in the life sciences strategy field, providing advice and insights across all experience levels in the Life Sciences industry with main areas of focus being pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, business intelligence, quality assurance and medical devices. The company's core strength is the specificity of its field.

It was that gap in the market that led to the decision to start the firm-and it's no surprise that the founder has deep experience and expertise in the field.
LS Solutions' clients include a broad range of operating companies in the life sciences, from medical device and pharmaceutical companies to cloud technology companies operating in the life sciences field. The company prefers to partner with clients for long-term relationships, which has contributed to significant growth year after year.
