Scientific Opinion

Client situation

Our client, a research-based pharmaceutical company, participated in a public tender for diagnostics. However, the specific tender conditions were unfavorable for our customer’s products compared to those of competitors. Our customer decided to take legal action against the tender procedure.

Our solution

We prepared a comprehensive medical-scientific expert opinion, which became an important part of the statement of claim of the lawyers commissioned by our client. In the expert opinion, we used well-founded arguments to demonstrate that the tender conditions were questionable from a medical-scientific point of view. In addition, we supported our client in the oral hearing before the Public Procurement Chamber in Bonn as a private expert.

Client benefits

Our client’s action against the terms and conditions of the tender was successful; the terms and conditions of the procedure had to be changed in the interests of our client.
