Health Care Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Effective litigation can be a strategic effort that caps risks, contains costs and makes intelligent use of client and attorney time. When disputes arise, our Health Care Law attorneys and litigators work closely to achieve results that further our clients' business objectives. Our litigators bring many years of experience representing companies in the health care industry in jurisdictions throughout the United States and in every aspect of litigation and dispute resolution, from jury trials and bench proceedings, to appellate and Supreme Court arguments. Where alternative dispute resolution or settlement offers a viable option, we draw on our extensive skills in arbitration, mediation and negotiation.

We regularly defend employers in the health care industry against a range of employment-related claims, including discrimination, wage-and-hour and contract disputes. We represent public and private companies and individuals facing civil, criminal and regulatory investigations and law enforcement actions, and in proceedings before the Department of Justice, U.S. Attorneys' Offices, the Internal Revenue Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and state government entities.

Much Shelist also has a highly sophisticated policyholders' insurance coverage practice, which provides comprehensive insurance-coverage and risk management counseling and includes experienced trial lawyers committed to protecting the rights of businesses and other policyholders in the health care industry.
