We have extensive experience and expertise in assisting health care institutions, entities, and practices so that they, in turn, may assist others in the maintenance and improvement of health. Our attorneys served in general counsel positions in the pharmaceutical, outpatient services, telemedicine, and health care technology space- we understand the unique issues and business challenges of health care.
Our deep understanding of the legal and business issues surrounding health care allows us to effectively represent hospitals, healthcare systems, outpatient service providers, pharmaceutical companies, and medical device manufacturers in a wide range of matters.
Our work includes representation in compliance, health care transactional, restructuring, litigation, financing, telemedicine, information technology, privacy, cybersecurity, labor, employment, commercial real estate, and other matters associated with the day-to-day operations of health care entities and institutions.
Representative matters include the representation of several leading hospital systems across the country in addressing compliance, litigation, information security, privacy, as well as labor and employment matters, representation of outpatient service providers in California, Arizona, and Florida in addressing regulatory, commercial real estate, litigation, and labor and employment matters, as well as undertaking a number of purchase-side transactions of individual and group health care practices, including negotiation, diligence, and documentation of the transactions, and the start-to-finish creation of all documentation and compliance policies for several telemedicine and online medical service provider platforms. Other examples include the representation of a major children’s hospital in a series of information security incidents resulting in no-fine findings from the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights (OCR HHS) after a lengthy investigation and regulatory process, and the representation of a major pharmaceutical services company in a regulatory investigation with OCR HHS in responding to false allegations of information systems compromise by a foreign governmental entity resulting in a no-fine finding by OCR HHS.
Our firm has also represented many group practices and health care entities in corporate formation, governance, and re-organization, as well as assisting physicians and business owners in negotiating and entering into partnerships, ownership arrangements with juridical entities, and executive compensation arrangements. We have also assisted public companies in the health care industry sector regarding periodic SEC reporting, corporate governance, director fiduciary duties, and general securities and corporate matters.
We also have extensive health care litigation experience, including the successful representation of a leading air ambulance service provider in payor litigation, representation of several hospitals in payor litigation related to routine and systematic underpayment for services, representation of several health care providers in a number of labor and employment related litigations involving allegations of misclassification and alleged underpayment, as well as a number of litigations involving non-compete and non-solicitation issues under California, Arizona, and Florida law.
