Healthcare and Life Sciences

Healthcare expenditures account for nearly twenty percent of US GDP and costs continue to rise. The industry, regulations and relationships continue to become more complex, particularly with recent reform efforts. We work with health care organizations in achieving both long-term strategic goals and executing on immediate operational needs. We also handle routine health care disputes, litigation and administrative proceedings as well as company litigation and criminal fraud and abuse investigations. Our health care practice includes counseling clients on health care corporate finance and corporate transactions; managed care and insurance regulation; intellectual property and information technology; public policy and government advocacy; government investigations,  fraud and abuse; antitrust law and health care litigation, as well as health care bankruptcies and reorganizations.
