Our Healthcare practice works with hospitals and healthcare organizations to navigate and avoid compliance problems and to achieve successful resolution in the event such problems arise. Our attorneys advise clients on the full range of hospital-physician lifecycle and business issues confronting healthcare providers across the country. We have deep experience in developing and implementing proactive programs designed to successfully detect potential problem areas before they become compliance issues. Our attorneys provide counsel that aligns legal strategies with our clients’ unique business objectives. We also step in to assist with internal investigations and, if necessary, defend our clients in litigation, with a history of successful results on behalf of healthcare providers, including a number of particularly high profile cases defending actions involving Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement regulations, either initiated by whistleblowers or brought by the government under the False Claims Act.

We are poised to assist clients in understanding the changing landscape of healthcare law in the age of the Affordable Care Act. Healthcare providers are subject to strict privacy protection requirements, and we help our clients understand and comply with requirements imposed under HIPAA and the HITECH Act.
