Assistant General Counsel


No company knows the brain better.

Lundbeck is uncompromisingly committed to the research, development and delivery of targeted therapies for people living with significant psychiatric and neurological disorders.

At Lundbeck, we believe life is too beautiful to be interrupted by brain disorders.

So, we pursue imaginative solutions, driven by passionate people committed to do the right thing for our patients, our company and our communities.

Lundbeck strives to be a leader in depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

For Lundbeck, making a meaningful difference for patients is more than an aspiration: it is a commitment that shapes everything we do.

Our advocacy for patients isn’t an invented “company value” – it is at the core of who we are and motivates every individual at Lundbeck.

Our ongoing engagement with patient communities is not what you might expect from a pharmaceutical company – we create our own programs to help patients and caregivers not simply manage their conditions but thrive in spite of them.
