Medical and Pharmaceutical Law
Among the general public, these terms primarily call to mind various lawsuits brought against physicians or pharmacists by dissatisfied patients. In the Czech Republic, however, this is definitely not the main activity in this area of law, which regulates legal relations in a sector where more than 100 billion CZK of public funds are spent every year.
Our big advantage in this area of consultancy is expert knowledge of the medicine and pharmaceutics sectors, a thorough knowledge of the medical environment, and easy familiarity with the pharmaceutics market.
This enables us to provide clients with truly comprehensive legal services, particularly:
- continuous counseling for pharmaceutical companies on legal issues that arise in the course of their daily business (clinical trial contracts and other agreements with healthcare institutions and physicians, registration of medicines, legal reviews of advertising materials, ensuring that all activities and procedures comply with ever-expanding healthcare legislation);
- representing pharmaceutical companies in proceedings before the International Association of Pharmaceutical Companies in the Czech Republic (MAFS) and other self regulatory ethical bodies on the pharmaceutical market;
- providing legal assistance to medical facilities and physicians while setting correct procedures for the provision of healthcare (lege artis);
- representing healthcare facilities or patients in medical malpractice suits.
