The health care and life sciences industries are certainly accustomed to regulatory oversight. Federal and state laws and regulations impact a substantial number of your day-to-day business activities. At the forefront of government scrutiny are health care fraud and abuse laws, including the federal Anti-kickback Statute, the Stark Law, the False Claims Act, and analogous state laws and regulations. Weighing legal risks and business considerations is a challenge that your company faces on a daily basis.
Our Health Law attorneys stay in stride with our busy clients, providing counseling on sales and marketing and other regulatory and compliance issues. To help prevent problems down the road, our attorneys can design and help implement your compliance program and can provide general and specialized compliance training. We also audit the effectiveness of health care compliance programs and conduct internal investigations when the need arises.
Our health law regulatory and compliance knowledge underlies our ability to counsel clients on transactional matters. We regularly advise clients on the structure of proposed business arrangements and financial relationships, such as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, affiliations, service agreements, employment and independent contractor relationships, leases, and physician recruitment arrangements.
