We are dedicated specialists, passionate about contracts

Giving contracts the attention they deserve

Convinced that contracting deserved more attention in the clinical study process, in 2010, Salvius Legal was founded in the Netherlands, with the mission to improve the quality, efficiency and value of contracting in clinical research. As we see it: better contracting leads to lower study costs, better risks positions of parties involved, and more importantly, to better and faster access to treatments and cures for patients.

What's in a name?

Publius Salvius Julianus Aemilianus

The company’s name refers to Lucius Octavius Cornelius Publius Salvius Julianus Aemilianus (c. 115 – 172), generally known as Salvius Julianus. He was a famous Roman imperial politician, jurist and public official during the reigns of Emperors Hadrian, Antonius Pius and Marcus Aurelius. Salvius Julianus made important contributions to the development, codification and explanation of the Roman laws and, famous for the clarity and finesse of his reasoning, his opinions influenced many other jurists.
