Our healthcare practice focuses on advising healthcare entities, including hospitals, health systems, medical foundations, IPAs, physician groups, and payors on a variety of business, regulatory and litigation issues. We have expertise in the complexities of managed healthcare, including Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, the Affordable Care Act and EMTALA, as well California’s Knox-Keene Act, Health & Safety Code, Insurance Code and related regulations. Our attorneys are experienced with the workings of state agencies that regulate healthcare providers, insurance companies and healthcare service plans.
Our healthcare practice offers creative, strategic and practical advice to help our clients resolve legal disputes that invariably arise in today’s healthcare world. We understand the business of managed healthcare and the intricate relationships between hospitals, physicians, health plans, employers and government payors. Our attorneys have a record of successful results in resolving disputes favorably for our clients before litigation or arbitration is ever filed. Once formal dispute resolution is necessary, our attorneys focus on achieving excellent results through mediation, arbitration and litigation, while insuring that dispute strategies are in line with our clients’ business goals.
We have experience before state trial and appellate courts throughout California, the Eastern, Northern, Southern and Central Federal District Courts in California, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the American Arbitration Association (AAA), JAMS and American Health Lawyers Association Arbitration, among other venues.
I like to practice healthcare law because I believe in what the doctors and hospitals are trying to do. I can see how the work I do allows doctors to provide better services to patients and helps the whole system function more efficiently. – Brian Taylor
