Since the early 1980s, our firm has been at the forefront of Certificate of Need (CON) litigation and counseling. We put this extensive experience to work for our clients by reviewing proposed projects, outlining the applicable regulatory framework, and suggesting alternatives to achieve the clients' goals in a compliant and less burdensome manner.
We also review draft CON applications for legal issues, assist in preparation of public hearing and written comments, and represent providers in appealing or defending the approval of CON decisions. Our team also routinely submits notices of exemption, "no review" letters, and declaratory ruling requests on behalf of our clients and meets with regulators as needed to discuss proposals and evaluate the likely response to unique proposals.
Whether you are an established provider with experience with the CON process, or a potential competitor looking to enter the market, we can help you assess your options and work within the CON regulatory process.
