Health Care Counseling
Our health care clients often face business, operational, and administrative issues. In addition to providing advice on the day-to-day issues that can suddenly arise, we often serve as outside general counsel and work proactively to help our clients develop and execute the right long-term strategies. In all instances, we draw on the collective experience of our health care group as well as attorneys from throughout the firm to deliver practical, business-oriented solutions.
Entrepreneurs & Investors
We have particular experience helping entrepreneurs and investors identify growth opportunities and launch new business initiatives, including providing advice regarding choice of entity, sources of investment and financing, partnership and shareholder issues, taxation, and other early stage concerns.
Employee & Vendor Relations
Effective relationships are a major component of every successful business endeavor. We regularly advise health care clients on human resources issues such as employee benefits, compensation, payroll, workers' compensation, non-discrimination, anti-harassment, management and other policies and procedures. We negotiate and document employment, non-compete, and non-disclosure agreements with key providers, including physicians, nurses, residents and other ancillary service providers, as well as for researchers, administrative personnel, senior management, and executives.

We also counsel clients on the full range of managed care, vendor, licensing, and other third-party contracts.
