Healthcare & Life Sciences
The life science and healthcare sector is characterized by fast-paced innovation, regulatory complexity and tension between strong growth and pressure on healthcare costs. Our clients represent all relevant stakeholder groups – pharmaceutical, biotech and medtech companies (including start-ups in early-stage development phase), service providers ranging from individually practicing physicians to large hospital and pharmacy groups, clinical research organizations, as well as health insurers.
We assess the regulatory qualification of products, advise in operationalizing new law or business models, draft and negotiate technology transfer, distribution and clinical research agreements, represent clients before governmental institutions and defend their interests before civil and administrative courts.
Two main success factors are paramount for us while we navigate our broad range of clients through the challenging environment: First, relevant legal expertise is paired with deep market and policy insight in a manner that goes beyond rendering mere legal advice. Second, our practice is seamlessly embedded in neighboring legal areas such as public law litigation, intellectual property, data protection, competition and financial market oversight.
