Hospital and health care law.

BROCK MÜLLER ZIEGENBEIN advises university hospitals, hospitals, registered doctors and non-medical service providers. Our work on behalf of registered doctors ranges from setting up practices, acquiring a license to practise as an SHI-accredited physician with respect to the restructuring or modification of the medical services provided, medical care centres, collaborations between practices, and all questions relating to the activities of SHI-accredited physicians (billing, performance auditing, medication recourse, etc.), to the legal principles governing the medical professional and the representation of doctors in medical liability cases. We support hospital operators in all areas of health care law. The core of our work here is in offering advisory services with respect to restructuring and reorganisation, the establishment and design of various forms of collaboration with medical and non-medical service providers and the area of hospital funding. Health care employment law, the law governing chief physicians, and employment and salary legislation concerning hospital physicians also fall within our area of expertise.
