Today’s regulatory and reimbursement environment exposes healthcare providers to complex disputes with the government, intermediaries, vendors, other providers, and sometimes patients. Our Healthcare litigators distinguish themselves with an unusual combination of healthcare expertise and litigation prowess that’s highly effective in protecting our healthcare-provider clients’ interests in whatever dispute they may face. We bring our insiders’ knowledge of the healthcare industry to the matters we handle in the courtroom, in arbitrations, and in complex administrative appeals.
We handle all aspects of provider-side healthcare litigation, from moving for injunctions against government recoupments or licensure revocations, to defending national False Claims Act investigations. In addition to False Claims Act and whistleblower defense, we litigate all forms of reimbursement disputes, including RAC, ZPIC, and MIC appeals. We also represent providers seeking to obtain or challenge Certificate of Need (CON) approvals. For providers facing steep fines and civil monetary penalties (CMPs), we are there from the IDR level all the way up through the Departmental Appeals Board (DAB) and on to the courts if necessary. In addition, we have a team of attorneys specifically dedicated to the defense of owners and operators of long-term healthcare facilities.
Our in-depth industry knowledge is complemented with clinical and provider-side experience because our team includes physical therapists, former general counsel for healthcare companies and a full-time registered nurse who provides medical record analysis and insights. Our group also includes Fellows of the Litigation Counsel of America, an invitation-only trial honor society.
