Our Healthcare Professionals Practice
Healthcare professionals confront a regulatory structure enforcing compliance with a broad range of ethical and other practice standards. Additionally, professionals face an increasingly hostile litigation environment. With decades of experience defending the interests of healthcare professionals, we have the practical wisdom, tenacity, and familiarity with health care practices required to represent providers in matters ranging from initial licensure to disciplinary matters and malpractice claims.
We represent healthcare professionals and provide counsel in matters including:
- Healthcare ethics questions
- Representation before administrative and state licensing boards in disciplinary proceedings
- Expert witness testimony in disciplinary proceedings and malpractice actions
- Investigative board matters
- Analysis, advice, and litigation of coverage disputes regarding professional liability policies and insurance claims
- Defense of malpractice claims
We know what is at stake.
As lawyers ourselves, we understand the professional, reputational, and financial impacts that may be associated with a board disciplinary matter or a malpractice claim. In these critical moments, we work with clients to develop a comprehensive strategy to address the issues raised. Our goal for clients is to implement a strategy of representing their interests immediately and persistently, to assure them that everything possible is being done so that they can continue their practice. We also can draw on our insurance law experience with professional liability matters when appropriate.
A healthcare professional’s livelihood depends on holding a license. We work with professionals to secure licenses when issues are raised during the application process, and we defend licensees facing disciplinary action by their regulatory boards that threaten their reputations and their careers. In either situation, we develop a strategy aimed at protecting the client’s right to practice, avoiding or minimizing financial penalties, and defending the client’s hard-earned reputation.
Professional Malpractice Defense
We defend healthcare professionals accused of malpractice. Our attorneys dive deep into our clients’ practices to understand both the facts of the case and the professional standards that will be applied. Drawing on decades of experience, we understand the professional, reputational, and financial stakes at play when a professional is accused of negligence. It is our honor to be a firm other professionals turn to at the most trying times of their professional careers.
