Healthcare Regulatory, Transactions & Compliance

Healthcare is one of the most regulated, complex and technology-dependent sectors in today’s economy. Flaherty’s Healthcare Regulatory, Transactions & Compliance group is well-positioned to address the magnitude of issues affecting all segments of the healthcare industry, including hospitals, physicians, long-term care providers, physical therapists, correctional health care professionals, nurses, dialysis providers, home health providers and others in the healthcare provider community.

As a key player in defense of medical malpractice and other litigation-related matters, our attorneys have unique insight into the health care industry. We understand the importance of assisting our clients in planning and meeting their regulatory obligations, focusing on business matters and effectively addressing operational issues.

  • Certificate of need
  • State licensure and credentialing
  • Fraud and abuse (Stark, Anti-Kickback and Anti-Markup)
  • Information privacy and security (HIPAA)
