Our deep understanding of the legal and business dynamics of health care enables us to effectively represent hospitals, healthcare systems, outpatient service providers, pharmaceutical companies, and medical device manufacturers in a wide range of matters.
We have extensive collective experience positioning health care institutions, entities, and practices to better serve the health care needs of patient populations. Many of our attorneys served in general counsel roles in the pharmaceutical, outpatient services, telemedicine, and health care technology space ‒ so we understand the unique issues and business challenges providers and businesses face.
Members of our team have provided representation in compliance, restructuring, litigation, financing, telemedicine, information technology, privacy, cybersecurity, labor, employment, commercial real estate, and transactions and matters associated with the day-to-day operations of health care entities and institutions.
Examples of matters our practice attorneys have handled include representation of several hospital systems and outpatient service providers in California, Arizona, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Florida in various regulatory, compliance, litigation, information security, privacy, commercial litigation, commercial real estate, and labor and employment matters. We have handled numerous purchase-side transactions of individual and group health care practices, including negotiation, due diligence, and transaction documentation. We have developed comprehensive documentation and compliance policies for several telemedicine and online medical service provider platforms. We have assisted in providing advice and counseling on a wide variety of matters ranging from the filming of reality television series within a functioning hospital setting, to life-and-death issues associated with conflicts of law in the application of advanced directives.
One of our attorneys represented a children’s hospital in a series of information security incidents; after a lengthy investigation and regulatory process, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights (OCR HHS) found that no fines were applicable. The OCR HHS also issued a no-fine finding in connection with representation of a pharmaceutical services company whose information systems were alleged to have been compromised by a foreign governmental entity.
Our attorneys have represented group practices and health care entities in corporate formation, governance, and reorganization. We have counseled physicians and business owners in negotiating and entering into partnerships, ownership arrangements with juridical entities, and executive compensation arrangements. We have assisted publicly-traded health care companies with SEC reporting, corporate governance, director fiduciary duties, and general securities and corporate matters.
Members of our team have extensive health care litigation experience including the successful representation of a leading air ambulance service provider in payor litigation; representation of hospitals in payor litigation related to routine and systematic underpayment for services; and representation of health care providers in labor and employment-related matters involving allegations of misclassification and underpayment. We have also litigated numerous matters involving non-compete and non-solicitation issues in the health care context.
We are pleased to provide counseling and representation for participants across the health care sector that helps them meet objectives, address challenges, and continue the important work of improving people’s quality of life.
