Health Care Law

Our lawyers have significant experience in the healthcare field. Representative clients include physicians and physician groups, large specialty practices, dentists and dental specialist, clinics, ambulance services, personal care homes, nursing homes, healthcare financing companies and other healthcare companies and facilities.

We counsel our healthcare clients in all phases of their growth, from start-up through expansion to the ultimate sale of the business. Healthcare businesses must be properly structured to comply with federal and state laws and regulations. Our attorneys have extensive experience in this area, along with the drafting of professional and executive employment agreements, restrictive covenant agreements, shareholder agreements, operating agreements, and management agreements. With the firm’s broad and sophisticated experience in acquisition financing, business and capital development, real estate, and business litigation, we support the broad legal needs of our healthcare clients.

In addition to advising our healthcare clients on their business related issues, we provide expert counsel on regulatory issues, including HIPAA compliance, anti-kickback and Stark issues, reimbursement issues, licensing issues, government relations, legislative issues related to healthcare, government franchises and contracts with healthcare entities, service level agreements between providers, healthcare risk management, defense in liability litigation; the contesting of government audits and recoupment proceedings; preparation of compliance plans; building and contracting with provider networks and managed care entities, and defense in civil and criminal healthcare fraud litigation. We have had great success in heading off criminal proceedings and obtaining favorable resolutions for our clients through negotiation and through administrative proceedings. Our lawyers have authored legislation that improved reimbursement for healthcare providers and have appeared before numerous legislative committees to secure funding and protect our clients’ interests.
