Health Law


Health Law

The formation of a private medical practice, physician group, surgery center, hospital, (Article 28), or other medical business entity is a complex process governed by both Federal and State laws.

A medical business entity, whether it is solely owned or a joint venture, may require licensing and regulation by the State.

Our attorneys are familiar with the laws governing medical businesses and have assisted many clients in the effective formation of these entities.

The administration of a medical business entity can present special challenges unique to the health care field. We are familiar with a wide range of issues relevant to medical institutions, including the following:

      • Insurance Terminology and Billing Codes
      • Laws Affecting the Sale of Medical Practices
      • Change of Control and Transition Planning
      • STARK Anti-Kickback Statutes
      • HIPPA, Privacy and Risk Management
      • Certifications of Need (CON)
      • Staff Privileges & Licensing Matters
      • Medicare, Medicaid & Private Sector Payor Audit Defense & Appeals
      • Real Estate Transactions

Our guidance and recommendations in the drafting of legal medical business agreements focus on protecting the interests of our clients.

We also represent medical entities, physicians, and other medical professionals, in any business and professional disputes that may arise.

We understand that whether you are starting a medical business practice, seeking legal medical business counsel on day-to-day operations or involved in a dispute, you need an attorney who is familiar with your business and your profession.
