Our Healthcare and Food Practice has advised over 150 clients on issues of public health, food and nutrition, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, helping deliver political and policy change in the European Union and other regions.

We have been at the cutting edge of major global policy initiatives over the past 15 years. With many aspects of health being the competence of Member States, our network enables you to engage rapidly and simultaneously with stakeholders and policymakers at both national and regional levels.

Our work with leading industry players, including industry associations, professional expert groups, patient and consumer bodies gives us in-depth understanding of the complex stakeholder interests, political insights and lets us build trusted relationships. This allows us to propose strategies that advocate effectively for policy change, revision of legislation and implementation of guidelines in the health and food sectors.

Decision-makers in healthcare are increasingly searching for economically sustainable approaches and evidence-based decisions. Our relations with academia, decision makers and third parties help you to develop solution-oriented approaches to critical challenges. We advise on market access issues, including policies relating to health technology assessments (HTA), pricing and reimbursement.

In the food and drink sector the industry faces diverse regulatory and political challenges in upholding and protecting its ability to sell, distribute or market products. We seek to engage with policymakers, government agencies, academic experts and work closely with trade associations, militating against policy actions that could restrict markets and undermine freedom to operate.
