General Counsel Services

In an ideal world . . . every healthcare business should have its own General Counsel.

Wouldn’t it be nice to call your General Counsel when a legal issue develops -- instead of having to guess about what to do?

The responsiveness, familiarity, and trust derived from the continuity of an ongoing relationship with General Counsel necessarily enhance the performance of any healthcare business and the peace of mind of its owners. For smaller medical practices and healthcare businesses, however, full-time General Counsel is typically cost prohibitive. And hiring a private attorney on an ad hoc basis often results in time-consuming efforts to get the lawyer up to speed on the dynamics of your business. The alternative – guessing at the legal answer – creates unnecessary financial risks.  

Our health law firm provides the solution.

We Protect Your Business

Most medical practices do not look for a lawyer until they feel they have to. Many relationships with counsel begin with organizations asking for assistance to fix a specific problem or consider a proposed transaction. Healthier organizations proactively screen for legal issues and invite periodic compliance checks, establishing relationships with counsel so that reliable advice is easily accessible when needed.
