Good ‘climate’

Recent changes in the Dutch healthcare system have allowed investors and care providers to operate from the Netherlands when deploying innovative care concepts. The relocation of the EMA to Amsterdam attracts also new pharmaceutical companies and generates a lot of activity.

Remodelling of the healthcare system has resulted in hospital mergers, partnerships, and reorganisation of healthcare. Besides that, E-Health plays an increased role in prevention and screening. This growth in innovation is evident across other Loyens & Loeff markets in Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

Digital Economy

Digital transformation is all about using the latest technology to improve your business model. Digital technology creates new business opportunities which in turn creates a whole new range of tax and legal challenges such as contracting, data protection, privacy questions, intellectual property, consumer protection and competition issues.
