Life Sciences & Healthcare Lawyers

Our team regularly advises our Life Sciences clients on their day-to-day business, for example in research and development (particularly in clinical trials), patent enforcement, regulatory authorisations, advertising and distribution issues, pricing strategies and reimbursements under social security law as well as all regulatory issues (compliance) and data protection.

We support our Healthcare clients in particular in the areas of social security regulatory authorisations, professional law, data protection, tariff negotiations and tariff settings, planning (hospital planning, planning of highly-specialised medicine), liability issues and compliance.

Many of our experts have worked in Life Sciences & Healthcare companies prior to joining CMS, gaining extensive knowledge in pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotechnology, chemistry, foodstuffs, cosmetics and medical services. Through our active membership in the most important industry associations and our participation in the legislative process, we contribute to shaping the legal and regulatory framework for the Life Sciences & Healthcare sector.

We have been working successfully for many years with leading companies in the Life Sciences sector in the fields of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotechnology, chemistry, foodstuffs and cosmetics. These include the world’s most important pharmaceutical companies and the world’s leading medical device companies. In the Healthcare sector, we advise and represent all relevant medical service providers (hospitals, HMOs, nursing homes, laboratories, physicians, pharmacists, etc.) and their associations.
