Health - Medico-social sector

Cornet Vincent Ségurel supports various health care professionals (hospitals, clinics, mutual insurance companies, medical laboratories, doctors, dentists, pharmacists, etc.) and the medico-social sector, (institutes caring for children, medico-psychological teaching centres, medical education institutes, advanced schools for engineering and technology, nursing homes for dependent older people, etc…) in all their projects as well as in the day-to-day operations and implementation of their most complex investment or cooperation projects.

Cornet Vincent Ségurel also works with biotechnology and e-health companies.

Whatever the project, we can advise on the ethical issues or compliance with regulatory aspects, including management of personal data of patients or residents.

We advise public and private health care entities, or companies that they may organise, in their relations with regulatory authorities (Regional health center; Governments of local administrative districts, Medical Board (“Ordre”), etc.) and all of their partners.

Cornet Vincent Ségurel can assist in the structuring of projects. We can prepare appropriate contractual documents (agreement for the individual practice of medicine between doctors and clinics, employment agreement, service agreement, distribution agreement, standard terms and conditions of sale) and revise the documents that are submitted by clients. We can form groupings or associations for companies required for the success of such projects, entities for which we can thereafter ensure legal follow-up.

We provide assistance to health care, e-health, pharmaceutical industry and biotechnology professionals in the area of intellectual property (in particular registrations of trademarks or patents, management of such trademarks or patents over time and in the appropriate territory).

In the area of property, we support numerous public and private health establishments and public and private establishments of the medico-social sector (  social service providers, etc.) and private professionals in the construction or renovation of their facilities from devising the most appropriate contractual documents (conception-completion-maintenance, administrative leases, typical public contracts, etc.), through the steps for organizing and participating in bid tenders and negotiation to finalization of the projects in all their aspects, including exchanges with regulatory authorities.

We ensure implementation of numerous cooperation projects in these sectors by creating an agency or contractual cooperation as well as between or among establishments/facilities (groupings of health care cooperation, public-private partnerships as co-owners of a project, etc.) and private professionals (health care clinics, etc.).

In this respect, Cornet Vincent Ségurel has managed to develop a network of independent technical and financial expert specialists in these areas with whom the Firm works to provide a complete response, meeting a client’s needs.

Finally, we assist public and private entities in managing their human resource issues, providing both advisory and litigation services, ensuring them the benefit of our experience in the areas of public hospital management, employees of the private sector, or private professionals. Likewise, we advise structures for pooling of resources or practice for any and all issues in the area of employment law.
