Luther advises Finnish healthcare provider Mehiläinen on market entry in Germany

Hanover – The Finnish-based international healthcare company Mehiläinen Oy has acquired the renowned Dalberg Klinik AG in Fulda. The entire transaction as well as the parallel certification of the digital health platform of the subsidiary BeeHealthy were legally advised by the Health Care & Life Science team of Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft.
