About Dewallens & partners
Dewallens & partners is a specialized law firm operating exclusively in healthcare. We combine knowledge in the dynamics of healthcare with state-of-the-art legal expertise. Our clients therefore can take position in healthcare faster and better than others in a context where network governance, shared health information and on-line caring communities have become inevitable.

Our lawyers have an outstanding academic track record. They have distinguished themselves on a scientific level and most of them are academically active in addition to their practice. They do both fundamental and applied research and they teach the various parts of health law at universities and business schools. We are convinced that the complexity of healthcare requires adaptive practised health law. We actively take part in building health law as a living organism. This is the first way we distinguish ourselves.

To offer a relevant service it is a strict necessity that our lawyers have true insight both into the strategic and the technological environment where they provide advice and legal assistance. That insight they have through their practical experience and by their involvement in governing bodies, professional associations, interest groups and in the government. This is the second way we distinguish ourselves.
