This industry is fast-growing and simultaneously faces a dynamic structural change. It is one of the most regulated markets, and companies face various challenges.

We have been advising leading international pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical devices manufacturers, biotech companies, hospitals, nursing homes, health insurance companies and service providers for many years in the health sector. Our experts support their clients in their daily business, on regulatory issues, tax optimisation, compliance challenges, product liability cases, other disputes and larger projects.

We also advise our clients on acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures and other transactions. Our M&A experts know how a pharmaceutical manufacturer can secure and defend its market share, how building and operating a hospital is financed and how producers of medical devices develop or buy innovation. This specific know-how enables us to conduct efficient due diligences in transactions and without this know-how, the contract cannot be guaranteed to reflect the transaction value.

Our range of advice in the health sector includes:
  • M&A transactions
  • Regulatory
  • Product safety and product liability
  • Advertising law
  • Securing of intellectual property rights (e.g. combating product piracy)
  • Compliance, individual questions as well as compliance programmes and instruction courses
