OUR Experience
We help our health care clients execute their strategic plans; assess, manage and mitigate risk; and succeed in litigation by providing sophisticated, solutions-oriented advice that is delivered in a clear and direct manner. We know that our job is – first and foremost – to help our clients achieve their goals. Whether advising on a bet-the-company transaction or a more routine matter, we listen carefully to our clients and tailor our representation to best achieve the desired outcome. Our health law practice consists of an integrated, interdisciplinary team of lawyers with deep experience representing clients in the health care industry. 

YOUR Issues
Areas in which we help clients include:

Regulatory Oversight
Our attorneys are experienced in giving practical advice regarding compliance with all significant federal and state statutes and regulations, including the Stark and anti-kickback statutes, Medicare provider enrollment and recertification, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), regulations with respect to Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Health Information Technology regulations, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) and state laws governing each of these areas.

Health Information Privacy & Security
Our attorneys regularly counsel health care clients on an array of HIPAA and other health information privacy and security compliance issues, including guidance to covered entities, business associates, hybrid entities, research organizations and sponsors, and health information vendors. We also have considerable experience assisting clients in complying with rules governing the electronic storage of protected health information and, where unauthorized access to protected health information is discovered, handling any required dealings with the U.S. Office for Civil Rights, including self-reporting. To assist our clients with bolstering their compliance and risk mitigation practices, one of our attorneys is an IAPP Certified Information Privacy Professional and can provide advice to clients regarding U.S. privacy and data protection laws, compliance with those laws and risk mitigation practices.
