Reconciling Ethics and Business

We have contributed to the drafting of many internal ethical charters relating to:
- Relations of any sort with healthcare professionals and the authorities,
- Transparency.

Whilst fully respecting professional secrecy, we know “how things are done” and in advising you can give you the benefit of our market knowledge.
