Regulatory, Healthcare and EU Law

Given the relevance of Regulatory Law, Caiado Guerreiro has invested in qualified legal advice in regulated sectors. In addition, the firm advises and represents its clients in their market entry and relationship with regulatory bodies.

Special attention is given to the growing compliance requirements. Advice is provided in the Healthcare, Life Sciences, Data Protection, Sports, Tourism and Information Technology sectors.

Our team is involved in initiating and developing activity in regulated and self-regulated sectors, representing clients before regulatory authorities, and supporting compliance and specific litigation.

In the Competition area, Caiado Guerreiro has been involved in the most important and mediatic cases of application of competition rules, both at the national and EU level. This experience allows us to work with maximum competence in the fields of Competition Law, economic regulation, and European Union Law.

We provide contentious and non-contentious advice in all matters relevant to business activity, with an emphasis on agreements between companies restricting competition, abuses of dominant position, abuses of economic dependence, mergers and State aid and issues raised by the liberalisation and deregulation of markets.

The team deals with the electronic communications, postal services, energy and transport sectors, implementing and monitoring compliance programmes aimed at preventing the risk of non-compliance with applicable legislation and providing guidance to companies affected by restrictive practices.

With a skilled presence in the Health sector, Caiado Guerreiro regularly works closely with companies and the sector’s regulatory authorities.

Health Law covers the legal issues related to regulating the development, production, distribution and use of pharmaceutical products, biotechnological products and medical devices.

With a team of highly specialised lawyers with extensive knowledge of the areas subject to regulation, we support our clients in the various legal issues facing the health sector.

Health, being a regulated sector of activity, requires the specialised legal knowledge, where it is necessary to understand the workings and the interdependent relationship of the regulatory authorities, among which are INFARMED, INPI, the Competition Authority, and the Directorate-General for Economic Activities, as well as with the sector’s associations, such as APIFARMA (pharmaceutical industry) and ANF (pharmacies).

In Community Law, our advice also covers institutional and Community litigation issues relating to the free movement of goods, companies, services and capital, as well as general matters of harmonization of national legislation.
