Gordon Arata has the experience to help healthcare providers operate in one of the country's most heavily regulated and rapidly changing industries. We understand and can guide clients through the increasingly complex and specialized regulatory maze that has developed during the past decade in response to the increased demand for and cost of healthcare.  On behalf of healthcare provider clients, our lawyers advocate with regulatory authorities on issues as diverse as business arrangements between hospitals and physicians, quality of care issues in managed care and long-term care settings, and privacy of health information.

Our health law services include:

  • Assisting healthcare clients with transactional matters such as business financing, contracting, and business planning
  • Conducting litigation involving Medicare/Medicaid payment issues at the administrative level and in state and federal courts
  • Handling licensure and certification matters before governmental and professional regulatory bodies
  • Representing healthcare providers in their relations with hospitals, networks and managed care companies
  • Structuring joint ventures and other business arrangements with emphasis on tax exemption and reimbursement issues as well as avoidance of fraud, abuse or fee splitting
  • Drafting, reviewing and revising medical staff and governing body by-laws
  • Advising healthcare providers on employment related issues and representing them in related litigation
  • Implementing compliance programs, conducting internal investigations and counseling on voluntary disclosure issues
  • Advising hospitals on operational, liability and privacy issues
  • Defending and counseling medical staffs conducting peer review activities
