Overview

We offer our clients all the legal services they require for the running of their business. This includes IP litigation and regulatory support, and advice on competition, corporate, commercial and employment matters.

We have a detailed understanding of the Belgian and EU regulatory framework relating to this sector and advise and litigate on issues relating to marketing authorizations, pricing and reimbursement decisions, legislative reforms, off-label use questions, parallel import, etc. We also advise on the marketing and advertising of medicinal products, including compliance with the applicable rules and codes of conduct, restrictions regarding promotional offers and hospitality towards health care providers, internal audits, and drafting of company guidelines.

We provide creative advice on all aspects of IP law. We help clients launch successful strategies and represent them in litigation relating to the validity and infringement of patents and supplementary protection certificates and on trademark issues relating to parallel imports. We are also one of Belgium’s leading practices when it comes to pre-trial discovery and preliminary injunction proceedings (‘saisie-contrefaçon’).

Our clients are increasingly confronted with public procurement and competitive tendering procedures. We regularly advise and litigate both in relation to the generally applicable rules and with respect to particular tenders.
