L&K’s healthcare practice is led by a nationally-recognized expert in the legal issues affecting the healthcare industry. We represent both nonprofit and for-profit hospitals, hospital systems, health plans, physician organizations and specialty services providers. Increased regulation and rapid change within the health care industry presents significant challenges for all healthcare organizations, from hospitals to physician groups to eHealth companies and telemedicine providers. We are regularly involved in the most important and complex issues for our clients, including merger and acquisition transactions, affiliation and joint ventures, equity and debt financing, corporate governance, managed care contracting issues, regulatory advice, and compliance counseling. Our clients retain us for cutting edge expertise and strategic vision as well as to tap our keen knowledge of trends in local and national markets, which is gained from years of experience in the industry. In addition to specialized expertise in the healthcare industry, we are able to bring to our clients expertise from our other practice groups to provide service on tax, real estate, employment and litigation matters.
