Medical Law and MVZ

We have been working as a law firm for healthcare providers for 35 years now. The law firm advises doctors of all disciplines as well as dentists in established practices and employment throughout Germany.

We provide our clients with individual support in all legal matters.

For many years, we have been advising and representing a large number of service providers in a wide variety of configurations throughout Germany. Individual practices are advised just as well as large associations.

Strategic consulting is becoming increasingly important, especially from a legal point of view the future is becoming more and more important. Far-sightedness and the avoidance of risks are just as important as constructive and imaginative cooperation in the implementation of the desired objectives.

The following priorities:
are at the heart of our activities

  • Access to contract medical activity: approvals, employment and other permits for medical care centres (MVZ), doctors, employees and assistants (security, training, bridging)
  • Reductions from performance audits for fees
  • Regressions from cost-effectiveness and benchmark tests for pharmaceuticals and PC requirements
  • Claims from plausibility and accounting checks
  • Disciplinary proceedings
  • Approval and withdrawal procedures
  • Foundations and disputes of
    Medical care centres

    • Professional associations (local and supra-local)
    • Communities of practice
    • Apparatus communities in advice and representation before civil and arbitration courts
  • Shareholder Dispute: Dispute Agreements, Termination and Exclusion
  • Sale and purchase of medical practices

Medical law requires specialist knowledge of medical law and an in-depth understanding of the relationships and procedures of the statutory health insurance, the health insurance associations, the state medical chambers and health insurance funds.

Contractual challenge

Particularly in the field of contract medicine, there have been changes in recent years which have led to a far-reaching increase in flexibility in the practice of the medical profession. The entry of investors into outpatient care also raises new questions every day, which simply cannot be reproduced in a textbook. The choice of the form of society can be decisive.

This concerns, inter alia, the following areas:


  • Establishment of medical care centres and supra-local professional associations
  • Establishment of sub-community practices
  • Recruitment of doctors and remuneration models
  • Establishment of branch offices
  • Cooperation of resident doctors with clinics
  • Possibility of partial approvals
  • Development of legal cooperation between conservative and operational service providers

Detailed knowledge and the necessary sensitivity

In criminal law, i.e. especially in investigative proceedings, demonstrable success can only be achieved if the fundamentals of medical law are present. Particularly in the case of accusations of billing fraud, but also in the case of corruption in the health care system, a lot of detail and the necessary sensitivity are imperative prerequisites to let the proceedings end before they have even begun properly.
