Hybrid Healthcare with a Technology Twist
The healthcare, life sciences and technology industries have entered an era of unprecedented innovation and change. Our Healthcare, Life Sciences & Technology Team is uniquely positioned, through its integrated approach and experience in these areas, to help clients navigate this landscape and its corresponding opportunities.
Our attorneys partner with clients in all the sectors of the healthcare industry to provide legal and business solutions in one of the most challenging and highly regulated industries in the world. We offer legally compliant strategies and services in healthcare regulatory and transactional matters, including Anti-Kickback, Stark, False Claims Act, HIPAA and state privacy laws, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, contracting, acquisitions and integration, corporate structure, and compliance matters. We also represent healthcare providers in litigation and administrative matters, including payor audits and appeals, healthcare fraud investigations and prosecutions, licensure issues, and disputes with and among insurance companies, physicians, and hospitals.
Intense competition and increasing regulatory scrutiny are forcing the life sciences industry to adapt to new ways of doing business. We understand the complexity of these challenges and work with clients to drive growth and bring innovation to life. We work with medical device, pharmaceutical, and biotech companies on regulatory matters (including Anti-Kickback, Stark, and reimbursement issues); licensing and research and development matters (including acquisitions, joint ventures, and option transactions); and contracting matters (including clinical trial, supply, and distribution-related matters).
Today’s integration of grid, cloud, and other e-infrastructures within the healthcare, life sciences and other industries necessitates a thorough understanding of the underlying technology components. We represent companies in all of these industries in their capital raising, partnering, licensing, contracting and general corporate matters and represent venture capital and private equity funds and other financing sources in their investment activities. With the heightened importance and value of data generated in these industries, our attorneys understand the role of this data in reimbursement, the regulatory issues associated with management of this data, and the associated privacy, security, liability, and contractual concerns. We are uniquely positioned to provide guidance to our clients on these emerging issues.
