A finger on the pulse of healthcare

Our lawyers provide advice to a wide range of healthcare clients including hospitals, care facilities, state health departments, insurers and operators, investors, professional registration boards, regulators, pharmaceutical companies and life sciences organisations.

This diverse client list enables us to understand variations in healthcare legislation, regulation and practice in different jurisdictions and markets.

We monitor trends and innovations and the drivers for government policy, always ensuring our knowledge is complete and up-to-date.

Our dedicated medical malpractice team specialises in providing advice on all types of health sector disputes including those arising from the treatment of patients. We can also provide timely and insightful advice on regulation, dispute resolution and arbitration, and employment issues.

We are also experienced in areas such as product liability, intellectual property rights, drug licensing, and cross-border transactions, especially in emerging markets.

Our global network of lawyers operates as one team across all legal disciplines, with particular expertise in the UK, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

Clyde & Co has one of the most active healthcare practices in the Middle East, with significant capabilities covering a wide range of legal services. As one of the region’s few genuine complete service law firms, our combination of skills, expertise, experience and network of connections allow us to act as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for healthcare clients for all of their legal needs in the MEA region. Having been based in the United Arab Emirates for over 25 years, we are well versed in the nuances of local laws and regulations as well as the actual application,or non-application, of those laws and regulations by the authorities.

Our healthcare clients in the Middle East include private equity firms specialising in healthcare investments, hospital owners and operators, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, life sciences organisations, healthcare suppliers and distributors, health ministries, regulators and professional registration boards.

Our experienced Australian team advises both insurers and their insureds on issues that can impact both individual healthcare practitioners and medical establishments, such as medical malpractice, professional indemnity, professional liability, litigation & dispute resolution, public liability, product liability, cyber and data breaches, regulatory and investigations, employment and workplace relations.

In this way, we provide national and international clients with the detailed, tailored service they need. We are on hand, where and when required, to help them respond to challenges and make the most of opportunities.
