The health care and life sciences industries are not only highly regulated, but also very complex. From managed care, corporate practice of medicine, HIPAA compliance and breach reporting, to product liability litigation, licensing, research and intellectual property, our award-winning lawyers identify potential risks, keep our clients ahead of the curve, and defend them when litigation arises.

We represent virtually all types of providers across the continuum of acute and post-acute care including health care systems, hospitals and physician practice groups, as well as individual physicians, nurses and other medical professionals. We also represent pharmaceutical and medical device companies, universities and research institutions, scientists and health care practitioners as well as clients active in disciplines such as tissue transplantation, plant and animal biotechnology, and FDA trials management.

Further, our health care litigators have secured a number of successful defense verdicts around the country, some of which ranked among the highest in at least a dozen years. Practicing in both liberal and conservative venues nationwide, our lawyers have an extraordinary record of obtaining defense verdicts in courts that are considered notoriously difficult.

Our lawyers have a broad range of medical, scientific, technical and corporate backgrounds, and work closely together to provide integrated legal representation. Our team of qualified professionals includes J.D. RNs and several paralegal RNs who have over 50 years of combined clinical experience in various areas of medicine.
