The immense scale of China’s healthcare market and its continuous and significant growth are encouraging, but rapid growth often entails enormous risks, which renders careful decision making and professional counseling ever more indispensable. Our healthcare team has years of experience providing leading players in this market with practical solutions and sound advice, and helping health facilities, pharmaceutical group companies, and medical schools effectively avoid and control legal risks that may arise from their healthcare practices, while at the same assisting our clients to improve management efficiency and reduce operation costs.

We boast a strong team with solid expertise and ample experience. For more than a decade, our lawyers have been keenly following the latest developments in public health policies, laws and regulations, and closely working with medical experts, thus gaining a deep insight into the development and future trends of the healthcare industry. To enable our clients to offer more safe and efficient healthcare products, we have introduced a compliance and legal risk management system that ramps up their competitiveness in four key ways: stringent quality control of medical services; improvement of patients’ experience; implementation of brand management strategies to build trust; and standardization of healthcare service procedures.

In recent years, internet and big data have seen increasingly wide application in the healthcare industry. We are abreast of all the latest developments and have the insight and expertise to help our clients adapt to policy challenges and plan ahead for the novel legal issues that they may encounter during their provision of “internet plus” healthcare services. This may help alleviate healthcare professionals from constant worries over potential litigation and allow them to more fully utilize new technologies to serve society with effectiveness and efficiency.
