We are Stibbe Care specialist


Stibbe provides a full range of legal services for companies and professionals active in the care sector. These services also include providing legal advice on key elements in the constantly evolving subsectors, such as healthcare, hospitals, accommodation and care for the elderly, nurseries, life sciences, medical devices, big data and privacy.

The care sector is heavily regulated and therefore activity by companies and professionals in this field requires specialised and multidisciplinary legal assistance to avoid the pitfalls and to overcome challenges.

We regularly advise on the regulations that apply to hospitals and care facilities (e.g. legal status, restructuring and modus operandi of service flats and elderly homes, homes for the disabled and psychiatric institutions), medical liability (both under civil and criminal law), medical technology and devices, life sciences and regulatory issues pertaining to medicines, e-health, big data, privacy, data protection and professionals active within the care sector (e.g. physicians, medical specialists and pharmacists).
