Corporate Healthcare Attorneys

In addition to healthcare defense litigation, Ekblom & Partners, LLP assists healthcare entities and other medical professionals with contract negotiations, regulatory and compliance matters, and risk management strategies. Our corporate healthcare practice is informed by our extensive litigation experiencehaving seen first-hand what happens when healthcare providers are targeted as defendants in a lawsuit, we help our clients minimize risk and avoid costly and time-consuming litigation.

Contracts and Transactions

Ekblom & Partners provides comprehensive, full-service legal representation to healthcare providers, insurance companies, and medical facilities, including hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, physicians and physician groups, and surgeons.

We review, prepare, negotiate, and enforce contractual transactions that arise in the healthcare industry. Common healthcare contracts include:

  • Employment Contracts
  • Restrictive Covenants
  • Professional Service Agreements
  • Recruitment Contracts
  • Managed Service Agreements
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Care Transfer Agreements
  • Medical Technology Contracts

A poorly drafted contract can expose a medical service provider to potential liability. Since transactional and litigation matters are interrelated, our experienced litigators can anticipate these problems and revise each contract to avoid future pitfalls.

Regulatory Matters and Compliance

Healthcare providers are subject to a complex array of state and federal regulations. At Ekblom & Partners, our attorneys advise on a full range of healthcare regulations and compliance issues, including:

  • Fraud and Abuse
  • Professional Misconduct
  • HIPAA
  • HITECH
  • Data Breach
  • Billing and Reimbursement

Whatever the legal challenge, our attorneys tailor our approach to the unique needs of our clients and work to proactively address compliance with state and federal healthcare regulations.

Risk Management

Risk management in the healthcare industry addresses the systems and processes that mitigate risk in healthcare institutions. Risk mitigation strategies include administrative systems, processes, and reports that protect patient safety and privacy. They also protect the healthcare provider’s assets, accreditation, reimbursement levels, brand, and standing in the community.

The lawyers at Ekblom & Partners work with our clients to proactively promote systems and processes that will not only safeguard patient safety and minimize risk but will also protect the organization from potential legal exposure.

Healthcare Litigation

In addition to providing legal advice to keep our clients out of court, we represent healthcare providers in complex litigation involving medical malpractice, employment law, premises liability, and other tort and contract claims.

Our lawyers are in court every day, seeking vindication for our clients in claims involving neurosurgery, heart surgery, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, plastics, and head and neck surgery.
