Areas of practice

Medical law

We look after the interests of hospital authorities operating throughout the whole country, medical care centres, rehabilitation institutions and doctors specialised in different medical fields in strategic and conceptional matters. Our interdisciplinary cooperation with the heads of department responsible for company and labour law and ZWP ROTONDA GmbH in particular enables us to offer our clients comprehensive advice in all areas of the health sector.

In matters of medical malpractice law, we represent our clients both in pursuing claims for compensation and pain suffered as a result of possible treatment errors, and in defending against such claims. In this area, we focus not only on the proceedings in court but also on out-of-court counselling (for instance, in the conduct of proceedings before arbitration bodies and assessment commissions). The main emphasis in the range of services we provide in the field of medical law is as following:

  • Law on statutory health insurance physicians
  • Liability for medical malpractice
  • Contract and corporate law of healthcare professionals
  • Hospital law
  • Salary law of healthcare professionals
  • Advice and counselling in the establishment of medical care centres
  • New forms of care, for example integrated care
  • Formulation of contracts for the sale and/or purchase of medical practices
  • Physicians’ professional regulations
  • Precautionary proxies and “living wills”
