Healthcare Litigation

We represent healthcare companies and executives across the industry, including long-term acute care hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, nursing homes, psychiatric facilities, insurers, academic medical centers, physicians and physician groups, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, pharmacies, healthcare information systems and software providers, and group purchasing organizations.

Healthcare companies often are confronted with government proceedings while facing simultaneous actions from other state and federal agencies and private litigants. We focus on coordinating the healthcare client’s response to these “parallel” proceedings to ensure issues are dealt with efficiently and consistently. We assist clients with all litigation in federal and state courts and in arbitration regarding:

  • Antitrust claims
  • False Claims Act and whistleblower matters
  • Anti-Kickback and Stark violations
  • HIPAA privacy and security violations and protections
  • Tax-exempt issues and intermediate sanctions
  • Hospital medical staff and peer review disputes;
  • Employment and physician recruiting issues
  • Commercial disputes
  • Drug and medical device liability defense
  • Patent litigation for pharmaceuticals, devices, and biomedical technology
  • State and federal agency certification and compliance audits and disputes
  • Medicare, Medicaid, and other payor reimbursement audits and disputes
  • Managed Care reimbursement audits and disputes
  • ERISA suits involving employer health plans and health insurers
