Schlun & Elseven: Our Legal Assistance for the Healthcare Industry

Many legal provisions have always regulated the life sciences and healthcare sectors. Therefore, effective cooperation between the individual players in the healthcare sector is only possible if the areas of law involved are subjected to careful legal examination in advance. This applies to the authorisation law applicable to the service provider (pharmaceutical and medical device law) and professional regulations (e.g. radiation protection law). Furthermore, vital aspects such as data protection, anti-corruption laws and ethical issues must be considered when planning and implementing a joint project.

Whether you want ongoing legal support and partnership with our firm or need a lawyer for a one-off legal dispute, our legal team is here to help you with any legal matter. Our multidisciplinary approach allows us to provide clients in the healthcare industry with high-quality legal advice in various areas. In addition to medical law, we offer doctors, practices and clinics legal advice in German corporate law, tax law, intellectual property law and reputation management.

Our clients include hospitals, healthcare systems, clinics, health insurance companies, academic medical centres, and retail pharmacies.
