Comment: Munich partners Rehmann and Epping come highly recommended for their classic regulatory work in pharma law. Epping is also renowned in this field for her advice on licensing agreements. Thanks to its industry-related expertise in product liability, patent, IT and ?data protection law, the firm has a broader setup than most and is able to give solid all-round advice, esp. on e-health topics. Besides this, TW also has a large healthcare team that primarily advises on hospital and medical center transactions; however, it hardly ever collaborates with the pharma team.
Strengths: Pharma advertising and ?patent proceedings, advice to the biotech sector. Product liability ( ?commercial litigation and liability).
Recommended: Dr. Manja Epping, Dr. Wolfgang Rehmann (“simply phenomenal, we recently increased his hourly rate”, client), Dr. Sabine Rojahn (patents), Dr. Henning Moelle (“fast handling times, always available, distinct specialist knowledge, cost-conscious”, client; product liability).
Practice: All-round advice to the pharma and medical product sector. Strong litigation practice with regard to pharma advertising, patents and product liability. ?M&A, licenses and R&D cooperations. Also ?public procurement and advice at the interface with food law. Many years of experience in advising parallel importers. Also hospital law. (13 partners, 2 associates, 2 of counsel)
Clients: ?? Synlab on contracts; Bayer Healthcare in product liability test case concerning Yasminelle; DV Care Netherlands on purchase of dialysis units; ProSiebenSat.1 on acquisition of WindStar Medical; advice to Hexal/Sandoz on regulatory matters and in patent proceedings.
