My practice is focused primarily on health care and other complex commercial litigation.
The health care industry is incredibly diverse and complex. Litigation issues abound, from basic contract disputes with vendors, construction issues, class action anti-trust claims, class action wage and hours matters, non-compete violations to professional disciplinary problems. I represent health care providers at all levels and in a remarkable variety of cases. Years of experience in this space have given me a deep understanding of the industry and the roles of the various players, which helps me navigate disputes to make certain that clients’ limited resources are being spent wisely and that the ultimate objectives are achieved.
I frequently collaborate with attorneys in our health care services group to make certain we are providing the best possible advice to our health care clients. Many health care disputes involve regulatory or even political issues, and it is important to be aware of the other players, like a regulatory agency, that can have an impact on litigation strategy. We provide clients with a diversity and excellence of service that is based on a team approach.
I handle numerous disputes for health care clients before the Department of Health, Department of Education, Insurance Department, Department of Tax and Finance, in multiple mediations, in arbitrations before several providers, including the American Arbitration Association, American Health Lawyer Association, JAMS and the International Centre for Dispute Resolution and in state and federal courts.
I litigate a wide variety of commercial matters in other industries and have successfully handled product liability cases, trade secret, non-compete, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, securities disputes and all types of class actions.
Businesses in the health care industry are inundated with radical changes and constant pressure to do much more with less. More than ever, it is critical that health care providers have practical and cost efficient options for resolving disputes.
