Astrea’s lawyers are highly experienced in advising clients in the worlds of life sciences and healthcare, and we assist pharmaceutical companies and producers of medical devices, aids and apps when it comes to mergers and acquisitions, regulatory measures and drafting strategic and common contracts, including those relating to clinical testing and product liability.

We support our clients in respect of promotional materials and sponsorship activities aimed at medical doctors, hospitals, patient organisations and consumer organisations, and we have wide experience in e-health and (online) advertising for pharmaceuticals, medical aids and health apps. We also advise on new technology and privacy issues that play a role in the life sciences industry, including artificial intelligence and big data.

Our team has a high level of expertise in respect of patents, supplementary protection certificates (SPCs), trademarks, data exclusivity, business secrets and counterfeit products. We also assist hospitals, healthcare networks and healthcare companies in company law matters and corporate governance, drafting contracts on specialisation, upscaling and joint ventures, public contracts and privacy, which includes patient data processing.

Despite the fact that we will always endeavour to find a solution by means of negotiations, where necessary we also have much experience in settling industry-specific disputes through the administrative, civil or commercial courts.
