Few sectors in our society enjoy the microscopic attention devoted to healthcare. The quality of healthcare in the Netherlands is high, for which a high price must be paid, and making cost management essential. At the same time, the quality of care must be safeguarded. Healthcare professionals, administrators and policy-makers must constantly work under the pressure this brings. Our Healthcare team is there to help them where necessary.

The Healthcare team advises and litigates

Pels Rijcken’s Healthcare specialist team both advises and litigates. We also work closely with specialists in various healthcare fields, offering the perfect mix of expertise and experience. We are broadly specialised in healthcare law, including legislation and regulations governing medicines, the quality of care, market organisation and tariff regulation, healthcare procurement and health insurance law.

We are completely familiar with the healthcare environment: governance, healthcare-related property, medical data and privacy, and e-health, for example. Our clients are supported by a dedicated team. What matters to you is what matters to us. With our expertise we can identify the real issues. Healthcare is already complicated enough.
