Healthcare Law

Since its foundation, M&P has been advising on the field of health care law both in Hamburg and Northern Germany as well as nationwide. With a strong team of lawyers being specialized in health care law as well as experienced business lawyers we accompany service providers in health care law, medical associations and companies at the interface of health care law and corporate law.

Health Policy

We observe and analyse the constant changes in the health market and influence national and European health policy developments through our diverse network activities. Due to a profound market and legal knowledge, we design innovative and tailor-made concepts with our clients on an expert basis of health care, corporate and data protection law and guide our clients through the maze of connected legal, commercial, and regulatory challenges.

Our main attention lies on short lines of communication, precise and practically implementable decisions as well as long-term support of our clients in the implementation of the jointly defined targets.

Besides the professional expertise we are characterized by the close contact to our clients.  Legal advice is coordinated by a specialised lawyer who is always available as the company`s contact person. With our concept of a contact person, we ensure that you can ask your questions at any time. After processing your individual matters in the team your contact person can give you comprehensive and practical answers.


Our clients include service providers, especially doctors, dentists, pharmacists and health care professionals as well as their professional associations, management companies, public and private hospitals as well as medical device manufacturers, in vitro diagnostics manufacturers and other companies and service providers active in the health care market.


M&P has gained experience over years in the design of cooperation, participation and operator models. Our lawyers evaluate and accompany all transactions in matters of data protection, corporate and liability law and compliance in health care. In addition, we put our focus on the negotiation and monitoring of selective agreements, digital health law and the establishment of management companies and structures.

As to investments in companies of the health care industry our interdisciplinary team will implement your ideas within the limits of medical professional law and use our expertise in corporate law to evaluate target companies.

We advise you on questions regarding the design of your homepage or external presentation as well as data protection requirements and your obligations of documentation.

Our specialists for employment law will draw up work instructions for your employed doctors and employees that meet the requirements for compliance in the healthcare market by considering and limiting your liability risks as medical director or managing director of a company.

Outpatient service providers

We will accompany you in all aspects of corporate and health care law, from starting-up your business, on you own or with others to build specialist group practices. We advise you on a legally compliant development of a brand independent of your person, for example when establishing a medical care centre or a network of doctors. In doing so, we make use of all available legal forms and cooperate closely with various specialised tax consultants and auditors. We are in permanent contact with the medical associations, associations of statutory health insurance physicians and admissions committees, so that we can recognise new developments in good time and check planned projects preventively. Contract (dental) doctor law, admission law and professional law are part of our daily routine.

Inpatient service providers

We support hospitals and private clinics in all social law, corporate law and liability law issues. Together with the management we establish cooperation models, employee concepts, pool participations and also give advice in proceedings that affect status determination.
