Our experienced attorneys assist medical practices and providers with forming business associations, contract negotiations, employment disputes, and business tax issues. We help health care providers with the professional licensing process and professional licensing issues. We provide comprehensive legal counsel on complex and evolving privacy and security regulations, including the detailed requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
