Lacking or insufficient observance of laws and regulations attracts increasingly harsh sanctions. On the other hand, due to the sheer volume of rules, companies often simply do not realise that their conduct is in breach of any regulations.
We advise clients on compliance issues mainly in two areas: Compliance in public procurement procedures and compliance in the (public) healthcare sector.
For example, we provide advice on the permissibility of consortia and other forms of collaboration in public procurement procedures, on conflicts of interest, the permissible scope of contact between contracting authorities and tenderers as well as on pre-emptive strategic measures and self-cleaning measures.
We provide comprehensive assessments of collaborations in the healthcare sector as to their compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
