At Quarles & Brady, we have for decades represented every kind of medical entity. Our health care law team brings both the people and the experience necessary to address the full range of legal needs—from the routine to the sophisticated. For many of our health care provider clients, we serve a role similar to in-house counsel. We are familiar with the myriad of regulatory, practical, operational, and ethical dilemmas facing clinics and hospitals every day, and we are well-positioned to stay on the cutting edge of the highly regulated health care industry and keep our clients ahead of the ball in these challenging times of reform.
Our health law team can help with the entire range of regulatory questions: medical staff privileging, membership, and structure; the ever-changing reimbursement flows, and all the many legal implications therein; patient care and grievance; licensing, certification, payor relations, and credentialing; quality assurance; processes such as corrective action and reporting to the National Practitioner Data Bank; HIPAA compliance and state confidentiality laws; managing large data systems and the inevitable breaches and security issues; meaningful use attestation measures; and just about any other topic encountered by health care providers.
Our goal is to help clients address the gamut of legal issues that contemporary providers and physician groups must navigate— spanning labor/employment, intellectual property, real estate, tax law, tax exemption, immigration, insurance regulation, and other areas. And few law firms of any size have the varied experience, resources, and in-depth legal and health care knowledge that Quarles & Brady brings to the table.
