Legal and tax advice for companies in the field of healthcare, medical professions and research

German companies are global innovation leaders in the pharmaceutical and medical technology industries. The flip side of the coin is strict government regulation, increasing cost pressures for physicians, hospitals and care facilities, and the need to protect intellectual property in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
