Our unique blend of professionals allows us to serve a wide range of clients throughout the Northeast and in New Hampshire, including:
Many of our attorneys have experience in the public and private health care sectors, as members of Boards of health care non-profits and as commentators and participants on important health care policy issues. This practical experience in combination with our technical expertise enables us to understand and anticipate the impact of economic and legal changes in the industry and to help clients cost-effectively manage these issues.
We provide corporate, litigation and regulatory compliance support for our clients on a daily basis, develop and negotiate collaborative relationships and business ventures, provide transactional, tax and employment advice, assist clients with government relations strategies and help clients meet the challenging demands of this highly regulated and competitive industry.
The health care industry is subject to continuing and profound change as a result of persistent economic pressures. Due to dramatically higher health care and liability costs, market participants are constantly exploring many different ways of doing business. Novel business transactions, provider affiliations and attempts to transfer risk between participants in the system are ever-increasing.
At the same time, we appreciate that many of the legal and regulatory responses aimed at reforming the health care system have further increased the complexity of an already complicated set of rules and regulations, without necessarily providing relief from the underlying economic pressures. We understand the impact these changes have on our clients. Our goal is to provide practical and forward-thinking guidance to help our clients successfully navigate through this shifting landscape.
Our health care team provides specialized services to a wide-range of health care clients. In addition, our health care group is supported by our litigation, corporate, insurance, employment and tax group attorneys in order to ensure that the many needs of our clients are recognized and met.
We closely follow both the economic and the legal changes in the industry to anticipate and understand the needs of our clients and to provide efficient solutions in compliance with a host of federal and state regulations.
We provide a full range of corporate support for health care providers, including day-to-day outside corporate counsel support, strategic joint venture advice (including negotiation of service arrangements), mergers and acquisitions, tax advice, corporate advice specific to non-profits, and practical advice on shifting risk by contract.
Our team has a wealth of experience providing advice to providers involved in professional malpractice cases, licensure actions, quality assurance, and peer review programs.
Regulators play a critical role in interpreting the law, and we stay in close contact with both federal and state regulators in order to effectively represent our clients’ interests. If legislation is the best way to solve a problem, our health care group works closely with our government relations team to achieve a legislative solution for our client.
