Health Care

Fierce competition, complex regulations and an expanding array of services have made the traditional approach to health care legal services inadequate in today’s world.
 
Our health care lawyers are key strategic advisors helping each client succeed in their endeavors while remaining compliant with the law — often a challenging task as the industry changes in response to market forces, new governmental regulations and payer arrangements.
 
To meet these ever-changing demands, the health care team at Best Best & Krieger LLP provides clients with a multi-disciplinary approach to legal services. In addition to focused health care attorneys, we integrate our strengths as a multi-service law firm and draw upon the knowledge of attorneys in other practice areas throughout the firm to counsel health care industry clients on new business formations, development and construction matters, employee relations, real estate, and litigation. This synergistic approach to providing health care legal services merges experience in contracts, transactions, operations, payer-provider relations, regulatory compliance, finance and general business counseling, and allows us to offer practical solutions and guide our clients in implementing those solutions. We use our knowledge of the health care industry to prevent legal issues from becoming emergency conditions.
 
BB&K’s health care team provides legal services to clients that range from large health care systems to rural hospitals and clinics, and from professional medical groups to individual health care practitioners.
