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
