Healthcare

Healthcare clients come to us for solutions in matters that require transactional representation, contractual enforcement, or litigation. Our typical client is a provider looking for transactional assistance either to draft an agreement, such as a professional service contract, or to enforce a provision, such as a restrictive covenant. We are also retained by insurance companies to represent healthcare executives in directors and officers claims (D & O liability) and providers in state and federal investigations, from Office of Professional Medical Contact (OPMC) and Department of Health claims to subpoenas, investigations and claims involving Fraud and Abuse allegations. Below is a representative list of matters handled by partners in our firm:

  • Separation agreement for a department head leaving a large medical center
  • Responding to a subpoena from a U.S. Attorney for information pursuant to an investigation
  • Representing physicians throughout the OPMC disciplinary process to trial
  • Working with a hospital’s leadership and medical staff to remove a physician through a disciplinary process
  • Advising large medical practices on regulatory matters involving HIPAA and HITECH, data breach and billing corrections
  • Defending a large medical billing company in a state investigation regarding whether personnel were employees or independent contractors
  • Representing an automobile manufacturer in its claim against a stop-loss insurer to protect a self-insured plan

Healthcare law often involves federal and state regulations and a constantly developing body of case law. Contact us to see if your situation matches our expertise.
