Our attorneys are veterans when it comes to successful representation of healthcare clients. We have wide and varied experience handling the complex and sensitive matters that arise for our corporate healthcare clients and individual physicians, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers.
Our team consists of former government officials who oversaw healthcare licensing boards and supervised the Assistant and Deputy Attorneys General who represent those boards and prosecute on their behalf. Our well-established relationships and credibility with those agencies and individuals, combined with our inside knowledge of how they operate, allow us to navigate effectively the wide spectrum of licensing and regulatory issues that arise in the ever-changing healthcare landscape.
We also have a deep understanding of the unique issues and strategies involved in matters presenting both criminal and civil concerns. Increasingly in healthcare matters, board disciplinary actions and aggressive lawsuits by insurance companies go hand-in-hand with federal and state criminal investigations and prosecutions. Our team includes former federal and state criminal and civil enforcement officials, who have overseen and prosecuted those criminal and civil/licensing matters for the government, and who now bring that experience and credibility to bear for our healthcare clients with overlapping criminal and civil concerns.
When it comes to strategic planning, we excel in assessing and addressing potential legal risks for healthcare providers and practices of all sizes, and working with those clients to institute effective policies and procedures to avoid future problems.
We regularly defend and advise healthcare clients in matters involving:
- Federal and State False Claims Act
- Stark Law
- Codey Law
- The Anti-Kickback Statute
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”)
- State licensing regulations
