Healthcare is a massive industry that needs specialized legal advice.
Healthcare spending represents about a fifth of US GDP. Few sectors are as complex and highly regulated. In an ultra-competitive environment, our industry-experienced team takes care of clients’ legal issues so they can focus on business.
Our team provides holistic guidance on regulatory issues, including Stark, Anti-Kickback Statute, HIPAA, Medicare/Medicaid, and similar state laws. We handle provider and payor contracting; mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures; data privacy and security; licensing, credentialing and medical staff issues; government investigations and False Claim Act litigation; antitrust and trade regulation; employment; real estate; tax; employee benefits; and administrative or civil litigation. Given our combined experience, there is not much our healthcare clients face that we haven’t seen and successfully handled before.
Innovations in healthcare delivery and device and pharmaceutical design are also often top priorities for our clients. Our intellectual property and life sciences groups combine legal expertise in patent, trademark, and IP licensing, with sophisticated scientific knowledge to protect and monetize innovations and emerging technologies.
