AMICULUM is an independent, privately owned cluster of agencies which deliver value-added services and consultancy to pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies worldwide

AMICULUM comprises seven distinct agency businesses, each led by an experienced management team whose members are all actively involved in the delivery of services to clients. Every agency has a distinctive character and area of expertise, but share a single heritage and vision:

“To create a business environment in which talented individuals can deliver great work in collaboration with their colleagues and clients”

Each AMICULUM agency has its own in-house client service team and secure network, and all deliver services to a limited number of international pharmaceutical industry client companies.

When clients require either a broader range of expertise than can be offered by an individual agency, or need coordinated support on a worldwide basis, we can create account teams representing a range of specialisms and markets.

Because all of our agencies are wholly-owned we are able to ensure that our clients receive the same excellent level of service worldwide. Our integrated teams also provide a mechanism for rapid transfer of AMICULUM innovation and best practice to the benefit of our clients.
