The healthcare systems in the countries of the FSU region are characterised by a so-called two-tier system – the deficit state healthcare on one hand and a modern, privately financed healthcare on the other. The need for investment is enormous: there is still great potential in the areas of clinic construction and medical infrastructure, medical equipment and pharmaceuticals. At the same time, the healthcare sector is a strongly regulated area and, due to its proximity to the state, often enough appears a rather non-transparent field.

In recent years, we have primarily supported companies in matters relating to public procurement, licensing and sales of medical equipment and pharmaceutical products, as well as in planning and construction of medical facilities.

  • Corporate and tax structuring of investments
