Compliance requirements in the health system have become ever more onerous in recent years – especially because of the new offence of bribery in the health system. Many questions are therefore posed in practice. What forms of cooperation are coved by the offence? Where does criminality begin? What are the legal “Does” and “Don’ts”? When must criminal investigation be expected? How can that be avoided? How should I behave when a search is pending? We support companies in the health sector in planning and implementing compliance programmes thus assisting in avoiding liability risks. Our expertise includes contract drafting in the context of relevant professional regulations. We advise on legally secure cooperation in the health sector over the entire range from observational studies to receipt of funding so that cooperation does not equal corruption.
