In addition to our four specialist lawyers for medical law, our "Medicine and Medical Professions" team provides our clients with a whole team of specialist lawyers from related fields of law (corporate law, labor law, criminal law), who are active throughout Germany - in some cases across departments - in all questions concerning medical law.
Our medical law department is regularly awarded prizes by expert juries for its medical law expertise; in the current WirtschaftsWoche ranking 2020 in medical law, KUNZ is named "TOP Law Firm for Medical Law 2020" for the second time in a row. Likewise, Dr. Fuchs is again listed as "TOP Lawyer for Medical Law 2020" and thus as one of the 50 best medical law attorneys in Germany.
One of the areas of focus here is the handling of medical treatment errors. The lawyers working for our clients in the field of medical malpractice law combine many years of procedural experience with a sound medical expertise - partly acquired through additional medical training and/or the handling of several thousand liability cases - which is indispensable for the legal assessment of complex medical facts and treatment procedures. The size of our team allows us to specialize our lawyers in the respective medical fields, such as orthopedics/surgery, oncology and birth defects.
A further focus of our medical law competence area is the advice and representation of hospitals, chief physicians, registered doctors, medical care centers (German: MVZ) in the area of labor law from the drafting to the settlement of contracts, medical corporate law from the founding to the settlement of companies and legal constructs similar to companies, the acquisition and sale of practices or shares in practices, shareholder disputes, licensing law, and all related areas of law.
Closely related to the civil liability of medical doctors is the criminal law for doctors. Here, our medical law specialists work closely with our criminal law specialists, for example in cases of property offences or offences against life and physical integrity, and always keep an eye on the effects on the medical professional law (license to practice, admission, occupational ban, etc.).
