Life & Health are indispensable ‘building blocks’ for sustainable development and health policies are, rightfully so, evaluated and debated with the highest level of scrutiny. This requires all stakeholders in the Life & Health sector to be flexible and evolve not only along with the exponential changes in therapy and technology, but also with continuous health system reforms.
In a highly-regulated industry, this seems and probably is a never-ending challenge. The law relevant to Life & Health embraces nearly every substantive area of law, and is subject to ongoing changes resulting from economic, regulatory and technological stimuli. Adept legal service for the Life & Health sector requires an overarching understanding of a multitude of legal issues.
Our Life & Health team is a multi-disciplinary team organised in a matrix-like structure. The team combines experienced healthcare regulatory specialists with accomplished lawyers from other departments who equally focus on the Life & Health sector. By doing so, our team is able to take into account a variety of risks, effects and opportunities that cut across the different areas of law.
This allows the Life & Health team to satisfy and reconcile two of our core values: a fully-reflected analysis translated into appropriate hands-on and commercially sound advice. Through a permanent dialogue, the team coordinates and handles your questions and requests in a manner tailored to your expectations, and, as part of our valued relationship, updates you about future legal risks and opportunities.
Our experienced Life & Health team has advised a variety of stakeholders in the field. The team’s clientele not only includes several (multi)national pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies, but also institutional and individual healthcare providers.
