Comprehensive legal assistance for clients from the healthcare sector
We advise healthcare facilities and manufacturers and distributors of medicinal products and medical devices, as well as other enterprises operating in the healthcare sector whose activity must reflect the specific nature of the industry.
One of our focuses is conducting mergers and acquisitions in the healthcare sector. We conduct pre-transaction due diligence of healthcare institutions, verifying such issues as compliance with regulatory requirements, data protection regulations, and patients’ rights, as well as the status of their performance of contracts with the National Health Fund.
We assist in regulatory issues concerning formation of healthcare institutions, as well as the corporate, organisational and material requirements for their operations. We advise on how to comply with requirements involving hiring of medical personnel and how to protect patients’ rights and their sensitive medical data, including cybersecurity aspects.
We provide legal support in conclusion and performance of contracts with the National Health Fund (including issues of over-performance), as well as protection of personal data (particularly data about patients’ health).
We advise on issues of the conditions for providing healthcare services using telemedicine solutions and conducting experimental treatments.
We negotiate and draft contracts for conducting medical trials and other medical research (post-marketing) with the sponsors of medical trials.
We conduct regulatory compliance audits.
We represent clients in litigation and ADR arising out of the use of medical procedures and medical devices. (Recently we represented a manufacturer of orthopaedic medical devices in disputes with patients arising out of the medical procedures and medical devices used for their treatment.)
