Few industries are as heavily regulated as the health care industry, and doctors, hospitals, practice groups, management companies, and other health care entities have to address potential liabilities on a daily basis. To avoid legal disputes, it is important that health care professionals have legal counsel with experience in health care law.
The attorneys of Shulman, Hodges & Bastian LLP represent health care professionals in a variety of legal matters, including hospital acquisitions, HIPAA compliance, contractor agreements, employment agreements, IPO formation, CMS compliance, document retention and destruction procedures, auditing, and Medicare fraud litigation.
If you’re buying or selling a practice or facility, then the transaction should be carefully negotiated and fully documented. Our California-based firm handles these matters for clients throughout the United States. We also facilitate health care financing for borrowers and lenders.
Legal disputes can be avoided altogether with the right planning, but when a dispute does arise, it is crucial that health care professionals work with a litigation firm that understands health care law on the state and federal levels. Many disputes can be resolved through mediation or arbitration, but it is important to prepare the case as if it will go to trial. This kind of proactive approach to litigation gives our clients the leverage they need to get a favorable result.
Our firm also represents clients in professional malpractice cases. Whether you have a malpractice claim or you’re defending against one, speak with an attorney with experience in handling professional negligence claims.
