- Health Care
An active member of the American Health Lawyers Association, Kevin Little has keen interest and significant experience in representing health care providers in business matters. The continuously changing, increasingly confusing, and always complicated regulation of the health care industry has created unique legal considerations, particular business risks, and a few opportunities for health care businesses. Mr. Little concentrates his practice on representing physicians, physician groups, nursing homes, ambulance services and numerous other health care businesses. Our legal services to physicians and other health care businesses include medical business formation and setup, business planning, personnel issue, third-party payor disputes, HIPAA and regulatory compliance matters, self-referral and fraud issues, federal and state law enforcement investigations, Medicare and private-payor reimbursement disputes, medical audits, sales and transactions, practice breakups and physician departures, and negotiation of managed care contracts.
Kevin Little began his legal career with two federal, Judicial Law Clerkships, important jobs that immersed him in the exacting process of assisting federal trial judges in the resolution of litigated cases that often involved business and employment law. Since then, during more than 16 years in private practice, Mr. Little has served as lead or co-counsel in dozens of business disputes, simple and complex, involving federal and state law, at the trial and appellate levels, in litigation, arbitration and mediation. His business litigation practice has included disputes involving ownership rights, business dissolution, bankruptcy issues, business torts, contracts and intellectual property rights.
From substantial business litigation experience, Kevin Little knows why attention to detail and sound business practices matter. As business law counsel to numerous health care providers and closely held businesses, we assist our clients in being proactive -- instead of reactive -- about legal problems. Foreseeing and avoiding legal pitfalls and disputes is smart business that can save considerable legal expense. Mr. Little helps clients reduce risks and costs associated with potential legal problems and conduct business in a legally compliant way, in the formation, operation and dissolution of business endeavors.
Kevin Little represents medical practices, ambulance services, health care centers, and many other health care businesses and providers with regard to employment law and personnel issues, including pre-employment screening, hiring, social media questions, employee compensation and contracts, non-compete agreements, termination and severance agreements. Mr. Little draws on extensive litigation experience in federal court with a variety of employment law issues to advise and assist his health care and other business clients.
