Health Law

Few sectors in our society enjoy the microscopic attention devoted to healthcare. The quality of healthcare in the Netherlands is high, for which a high price must be paid, and making cost management essential. At the same time, the quality of care must be safeguarded. Healthcare professionals, administrators and policy-makers must constantly work under the pressure this brings. Our healthcare team is there to help them where necessary.
