Wachenhausen Rechtsanwälte

The legal service provided by Wachenhausen Rechtsanwälte is characterised by the provision of personal counselling for each individual client at a profound level of expertise.

Our clients appreciate our practical knowledge as an in-house and outside legal counsel as well as our entrepreneurial approach to the development of strategic decisions.

We marshal complex facts and circumstances at the interface between scientific issues and legal regulations for our clients and give our backing to the decisions they make. The crucial principle for us is to view the structure of each case individually and develop a made-to-measure solution for it; we believe that strategic consulting is a particularly important part of this process. Creativity, vigour and perseverance are the keys to our success in our day-to-day endeavours.

"There is no innovation without research. But there are limits: ethical, medical, and legal."

Prof. Dr. Heike Wachenhausen
"My goal is to create added value for our clients at the interface between law and medicine."

"The interface between law, medicine, pharmacy and natural sciences offers a wide range of exciting tasks for a lawyer and the chance to contribute to innovation."
