Pharmacy Law

Pharmacists are constantly facing new challenges. It is not just the spatial requirements for the authorisation to operate a pharmacy that are continually being modified; the permitted range, possible services and advertising options are also subject to constant change. This also involves issues resulting from the position of the pharmacy as a cost interface between service providers and the pharmaceutical industry: Retaxierung (re-appraisal of prescription billing), discount contracts, aut-idem, reference price groups.

We can represent you in all legal matters concerning day-to-day professional practice. Our areas of focus for consulting are the following:

  • Acquisition and takeover of pharmacies
  • Issue and granting of authorisation in light of the new working regulations for pharmacies and the German pharmacy act (ApoG) (in particular, universal access)
  • Hospital supply, subsidiary pharmacies and branch pharmacies
  • Pharmacy partnerships, brand partnerships
  • Own brands - contracts for contract production, manufacturing authorisation, approval/registration and labelling
  • Source materials – active and auxiliary substances
  • Information and advice
  • Prescription collection points
  • Blister packaging and placement
  • Permissible portfolio - usual pharmacy goods and services
  • Development and inspection of advertising in view of  the German medicinal product advertising act (HWG) and fair trade act (UWG) as well as the relevant professional law
  • Foundation of mail order pharmacies, advice regarding mail order trade and e-commerce
  • Online shop check (in particular, price information and information obligations)
  • Retaxierung (re-appraisal of prescription billing) - consequences of and problems with discount contracts
  • Cooperation and settlement with service providers
  • Cooperation with specialist groups
  • Professional law
