Physician Groups

Physician groups face shrinking revenues, a smaller pool of highly skilled talent, and new and increasingly challenging legal requirements. They need responsive lawyers who can efficiently provide the legal services necessary to help them successfully expand their operations and thrive in a complex business environment.

Our health care industry team provides practical, cost-effective assistance to fully integrated group practices and independent practice associations, as well as individual physicians. We offer many years of experience helping physicians expand their possibilities, advising them in hospital and payer relationships and ancillary service development, and assisting them in other critical operational and compliance areas, including:

  • Transaction and development work including ambulatory surgery centers, joint ventures, organizational restructuring, facility development and capital finance
  • Hospitals and health plan contracts
  • Vendor contracts
  • Staffing, including recruitment and termination issues
  • Medical staff, credentialing and disciplinary matters
  • Litigation and alternative dispute resolution
  • Civil and criminal investigations
  • Patient and third-party arbitration and collection issues
  • Employment matters and contracts
  • Employee benefits 
  • Corporate issues, including organization and taxation
  • Government compliance
  • Intellectual property 
  • Clinical research
  • Confidentiality, including HIPAA, patient consent, medico-legal and bioethics issues
  • Liability and malpractice insurance issues

We work collaboratively with our clients to understand their unique needs and goals, tailoring our services to help them succeed.
