Services

We perform advisory, litigation and complex regulatory work for companies, care institutions and other professionals active in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, healthcare, medical device and food sectors, at both EU and national levels.

We are active in numerous areas, such as intellectual property (including patents, trademarks and know-how/trade secrets), licences, compliance and sanctions, R&D/collaboration agreements, and advertising. Our Belgian experts also specialise in pricing/reimbursement, parallel imports, clinical trials, distribution, and product registration (including biosimilars).

Our strong litigation practice handles IP and regulatory disputes relating to medicinal products and medical devices. Our lawyers also have high-level expertise in compliance issues (including negotiations with the Belgian regulatory authorities regarding alleged violations of pharmaceutical laws), and regulatory and IP aspects.

We assist our clients with regulatory issues pertaining to medicines, e-health, big data, privacy, data protection and professionals operating in the care sector (including physicians, medical specialists and pharmacists). Furthermore, we regularly advise on the regulations that apply to hospitals and care facilities (such as legal status, restructuring and modus operandi of service flats, retirement homes, homes for the disabled, and psychiatric institutions). Our Belgian experts also advise on medical liability (under both civil law and criminal law) and medical technology and devices.
