American healthcare is transforming. While battles over healthcare reform continue to be waged in the legislative arena, a host of issues are being decided in the courtroom.
Our healthcare litigation practice is committed to protecting the interests of providers and payors.
We offer an unparalleled combination of deep understanding of the complex and dynamic healthcare field; strong relationships with and high-level access to the regulatory, legislative and enforcement entities and officials critical to your business; and the ability and experience to take complex matters to trial.
Our ability to provide outstanding service to our clients is significantly enhanced by our extensive healthcare regulatory and corporate practices. Our experience in the nation’s two most innovative and complex healthcare law environments—California and New York—combined with our respected government advocacy capabilities in the District of Columbia, Sacramento and Albany enable us to provide healthcare clients with unsurpassed legal and business advice. We have been at the forefront of virtually every major provider and health plan litigation issue in California in the past five years. Our healthcare regulatory and corporate practitioners also help our healthcare industry clients structure their operations to avoid litigation down the road.
The fact that our litigators have addressed your issues before not only gives us an edge in the courtroom, but it yields considerable cost savings for you.
