In addition to the challenges that practicing medicine has always presented, today, as a physician you have to be a smart businessperson, constantly quibble with the insurance companies and Medicare for payment, and at the same time worry about compliance with the False Claim Act, Stark Law, and Anti-Kickback statutes. The medical field has become increasingly regulated and many physicians run afoul of these statutes, sometimes even unbeknownst to them. Certain medical transactions trigger a number of these statutes and may be violated without any intent on the part of the physician to do so. Due to the nature of these ever-changing laws, rules, and regulations, you should have the advice of proper counsel when entering into medical transactions whether it is for selling or buying of a medical practice, the purchase of a mid-high price range medical device, drafting an associate employment contract, or a commercial real estate transaction for buying, selling, or leasing an office.
While you should be excited about starting a new enterprise, 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 doctors 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.
