Our Health Care department is comprised of attorneys who take a comprehensive and collaborative approach to meeting clients’ complex legal needs. In today’s litigious environment, healthcare providers regularly face legal issues that require immediate risk assessments and decisive action. Medical liability, employee misconduct, difficult patients, general business matters, documentation and record requests, subpoenas, and privilege are just some of the legal issues that can arise suddenly and require swift legal counsel. We serve as general counsel for health care providers throughout New York and New Jersey, and we are available for immediate consultation when legal issues arise.

We have extensive experience litigating matters before all levels of courts and before federal and state administrative agencies. We have long-standing relationships with these agencies and regularly engage with federal and state officials on behalf of our clients. We also consult with health care professionals to address matters such as entity formations, negotiation of partnership agreements, and preparation of operating agreements, buy/sell agreements and independent contractor agreements.
