Healthcare Law Practice:
Health laws, regulations and interpretations change quickly and frequently — and sometimes dramatically. Understanding and mastering the nuances of this dynamic environment is a constant challenge. It is also absolutely essential if you want to stay in business, make a profit and stay out of trouble.
Billing practices. Quality of care. Surveys. Enforcement. Fraud and abuse. Reimbursement. Referral-source relations. Licensure and certification. Patient privacy. The list of issues and exposures goes on. And that’s before you get to the issues every business faces such as finance, M&A, joint ventures, benefits, labor and employment, taxes, litigation and technology.
You need sophisticated advisers — lawyers who understand the applicable laws, regulations and policies that govern your healthcare business. You also need practical advisers who know how these rules are applied and interpreted, and how they are likely to change.
At Baker & McKenzie, our Health Law practitioners have made it their business to know and understand the intricacies of the healthcare industry. We are steeped in the regulatory requirements and standards for compliance. And we bring a lawyerly business perspective to help you deal with strategic, legal and operational concerns.
The scope of our practice is broad. We serve the entire industry, from hospitals, LTCHs, nursing, independent and assisted living facilities to home health agencies, labs and medical groups, and from ESRD centers and rehab centers to continuing care retirement communities and hospices. We also serve pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, DME suppliers and many other healthcare markets.
