Medical Law

Comprehensive consulting for hospitals, doctor's offices, and other service providers in the healthcare industry have always been part of our firm's consultancy services. Besides advising and representation in (medical) liability cases, the core areas of competence for members of the competency group include in particular law on statutory health physicians, corporate law for medical professions, hospital law, chief physician law, consulting for practice purchases and sales, founding and restructuring medical care centers, and establishing and reviewing compliance management systems to prevent and avoid corruption risks. We work with our clients to develop strategies, negotiate contracts, and represent our clients in court proceedings. If it would better serve our clients, we work across locations in teams with specialists from other professional areas.
