Supporting healthcare stakeholders


The healthcare law team advises and defends public healthcare facilities (university hospitals and centres), partnership structures (IHU, GHT, GCS, GIP), private healthcare institutions (EPSIC, social and medico-social institutions and old-age homes), and the liberal professions (biology laboratories, doctors, pharmacists, dental surgeons, healthcare centres and homes). We also work with manufacturers in this sector.

We have expertise in private and public health law:
