Health Care Law
This is a challenging time to run any business in the health care industry. Many of the old rules no longer apply, health care laws are more complicated than ever, and future legislation will continue to change how the industry operates. More uncertainly and tough choices lie ahead.
Much Shelist's health care attorneys provide straightforward solutions to the complex business, legal, and regulatory issues that you face every day. Our real-world approach is grounded in the practical – we immerse ourselves in our clients’ business, identify their specific needs, and deliver the most effective counsel possible.
Our team has significant experience representing provider-owned medical groups, large health systems, pharmacies, drug manufacturers, for-profit and not-for-profit hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, ancillary care providers, home health agencies, assisted living facilities, supportive living facilities, combining care retirement communities, life care centers, hospices, managed care companies, and other clients at every stage of the business lifecycle – from startups to established enterprises.
Our health care attorneys have a broad base of experience in the health care arena. Most notably, several of our attorneys are currently or have been previously involved in Illinois government. Two of our attorneys previously served as chief counsel for the Illinois Department of Public Health. Currently, three members of the group serve as an Illinois Senator, vice chair of the Illinois State Board of Pharmacy and a professional board appointee to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
We serve health care clients in the following key areas:
Counseling, including day-to-day operational concerns, employment and administrative matters, vendor agreements, regulatory compliance, intellectual property, and real estate and construction issues
Transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic alliances, financings and investments
Regulatory Matters, including compliance with anti-kickback/fraud and abuse, the Stark law, Medicare and Medicaid compliance and survey and certification issues, state licensure matters, certificates of need and other regulations
