While malpractice lawsuits and regulatory compliance are high on most health care organizations' lists of concerns, health care organizations are complex business entities that also face litigation in areas that may be unrelated to patient care. Because of the complicated web of regulations under which health care providers operate, however, it is important that health care organizations retain counsel with both business litigation experience and health care industry knowledge.
We have represented health care clients in litigation involving trade secrets, misappropriation of corporate opportunity, and unfair and deceptive trade practices, as well as identity theft, computer fraud, and antitrust. We have also defended our health care clients in actions alleging inappropriate debt collection practices, managed care disputes, disputes involving hospital management practices, and class action lawsuits. Our health care team knows the industry and how health care organizations operate, and as members of a full-service firm, we offer our clients access to experienced lawyers in other areas such as intellectual property, antitrust, and labor and employment to assist in building the client's defense.
