The good news for my veterinarian friends and clients is that they are not affected by the significant number of laws, rules, and regulations that have swept the medical field for the last twenty years or so. As an animal lover, I have a special affinity for veterinarians and I have been very fortunate to enjoy the services of excellent veterinarians for my pets; they have been there for me during the good times and some very difficult times. It is not patently obvious to everyone the difficult decisions that veterinarians have to face everyday and perhaps one of the more difficult situations comes up when veterinarians do not have the final say and a pet owner may be too quick in deciding to save a pet or not for financial reasons.
We are professional Veterinarian Attorneys experienced in Veterinarian Business Formation & Partnerships.
The demand for veterinarian services have been on the rise as more people are more invested in their furry friends. For the same reasons, there are substantial business and career opportunities for veterinarians. Although veterinarians do not have to comply with Stark Law, Anti-Kickback statutes or HIPAA regulations, they are still subject to many legal and financial pitfalls that are presented in commercial transaction.
While you should be excited about starting a new business venture, you should take the appropriate steps to minimize any potential damage to your personal assets and wealth. I will represent you in selling or buying your medical office from negotiation through the Closing. If you are embarking on a new office start up, I will represent you in formation of various business entities such as professional corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), and partnerships as well as your office lease and other contracts. I will also assist you to prepare for various business contingencies through the use of shareholder agreements, operating agreements, partnership agreements, etc. Additionally, I represent veterinarians in buying-in and buying-out of practices as a shareholder, member, or partner, and for drafting or reviewing associate employment contracts. Finally, as an experienced litigator I can vigorously pursue or defend your rights in court.
Feel free to contact me at 301-309-9002 or 202-309-1156 or firstname.lastname@example.org if I can be of assistance to you in any of the above referenced legal matters.
