PRACTICE

Health law

Our team’s recognised expertise is at the service of all stakeholders in the health field: health establishments and companies, laboratories and pharmaceutical companies, health professionals, governments and institutions in the health field…

In the face of ever-increasing regulatory constraints, we have built and developed a global and multidisciplinary legal offering that covers all areas:

– health activities,
– health products,
– and health professionals.

Our team works with both public and private operators in advice, litigation and training.

We are well aware of the profound transformations in the sector and have significantly invested in the law of new technologies. We positioned ourselves very early on in the field of electronic health.

Our activity presents an additional specificity: that of a markedly international outlook and more particularly one that is turned towards the African continent, as we regularly advise on health projects in this part of the world. We have set up an AFRICA DESK devoted to health law based on a multiple partnership with six offices located respectively in Abidjan, Bamako, Lomé, Luanda, Niamey and Yaoundé.
