The healthcare sector is a key market with great innovative and growth potential. At the same time, it is a highly regulated and controlled industry.

dedicated interdisciplinary experts work seamlessly together.
We have a broad and deep understanding of the industry, not only in the traditional pharmaceutical sector, but also with regard to medical devices, hospitals and nursing care.
In our Digital Health Group, we have pooled our expertise in all digital health topics.

For companies in the healthcare sector, it is therefore important to know the regulatory framework and to consider possible changes at an early stage.

Traditionally, different areas of law are intertwined, which increases the complexity. In particular, pharmaceutical law, medical professional law, data protection, IP, IT and antitrust law come to mind.

Our clients operate in the areas of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, research, hospitals and medical centres as well as nursing care. We advise them on transactions regulatory issues and assist in drafting and negotiating contracts. If a dispute arises, litigators specialising in health law handle the enforcement of your claims or your defence.
