Medicinal products and medical devices are heavily regulated in Europe and Germany.

Our deep industry focus and breadth of experience enables us to advise clients on all aspects of the product life cycle – from innovation and development through to commercialization and the eventual restarting of the cycle – as well as in contentious court proceedings with regulatory authorities.

German Life Sciences & Healthcare – Law Services

Generally, life sciences and health law is an area of law which is concerned with medicine and its relationship to the law. It is primarily based on the fundamental rights of the individual and how they balance with the rights of the doctor/health practitioner. In order for an individual to enjoy all other rights granted to them, they must firstly be in good health. Therefore, healthcare law is an extremely important branch of law in which appropriate legal coverage is vital.

The topics in the field of German health law we cover include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Malpractice compensation cases
  • Legal advice to health institutions
  • Legal responsibility of private hospitals
