Hogan Lovells International LLP’s ‘excellent’ team stands out for its high level of niche expertise in various healthcare-related areas. Jörg Schickert, who heads the German life sciences practice, has considerable regulatory expertise; he and Arne Thiermann, who was promoted to partner in January 2018, advised multiple companies belonging to Merz Pharma on matters concerning medical devices, pharmaceutical and compliance issues. In a highlight in the corporate space, the group assisted Centogene with a venture capital financing round totalling over €25bn; Munich-based Nikolas Zirngibl led the advice. Tanja Eisenblätter, who is based in the Hamburg office, utilised her ‘comprehensive experience’ in representing Daiichi Sankyo in several competition law disputes concerning anticoagulants. The firm was also active in the field of product liability law, providing multijurisdictional advice to a medical device manufacturer, and in the patent law area, where Alexander Klicznik represented Agilent in three infringement proceedings around mass spectrometres. ‘Magnificent patent lawyer’ Miriam Gundt; head of the digital health Continental Europe practice Matthias Schweiger; Ina Brock, who heads the global clients and industries group; and ‘gutsy’ patent law practice head Andreas von Falck are all also recommended.
