Welcome to The Thicket, a legal blog about healthcare in the digital era

Welcome to the first post of The Thicket, a blog that discusses issues of competition, IP, and data protection law in healthcare at a time when technology (and Big Tech in particular) is poised to have a huge impact in this crucial sector.

From Amazon entering the pharmacy business to Apple Watches becoming mini-medical devices and from patent thickets to reverse payment patent settlements, we are here to help you make sense of the developments. We will approach the healthcare sector in a broad sense, not focussing on one issue only but looking to identify the cross-cutting themes across medical devices, life sciences and hospital care.

We are always happy to receive any feedback. We hope to spur debate in this important area that will affect everyone.
