2020 Best Law Firm

We are thrilled to announce that our tiny little nano-law firm of two attorneys has just been named by Best Lawyers a Best Law Firm in the US for the tenth consecutive year -- every year that US News has generated this list. We are especially pleased since the selection is based on peer votes only. We are honored that our peers regard us as highly as they do. We enjoy our work and working with each other, and value excellence in our performance. We have been working together since 2003 so to be acknowledged for our joint efforts is especially satisfying.

As the health system is changing and with clients in every state, this two attorney practice advises on problems involving a wide range of issues, including:

  • Medicare reimbursement
  • Fraud and abuse avoidance and compliance
  • All aspects of Stark and anti-kickback
  • Managed care contracting
  • Medical staff bylaws and issues
  • HIPAA privacy and security
  • Electronic health record licenses
  • Hospital-physician transactions
  • Innovative payment models
  • Clinical integration
  • Physician compensation models
  • The use of patient safety organizations
  • Employment contract drafting and review
  • New forms of fraud and abuse liabilities
  • Pay for performance and bundled payment
  • Social media in health care
  • Medicare enrollment
  • Co-management agreements
  • Leasing the practice to the hospital
  • Hospital-physician contracts
  • Paying medical staff for quality results
  • Gainsharing arrangements

We do not litigate.

Because of our involvement with national professional organizations we can identify and work easily with local counsel for state law questions on which we do not opine.

We frequently work with our client's general counsel.
