Lawyers for Doctors
Buying or Selling your Medical Office?
Experienced Attorney for Doctors.
In addition to the challenges that practicing medicine has always presented, today, as a physician you have to be a savoy business person, constantly quibble with the insurance companies, Medicare, and Medicaid, 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 doctors run afoul of these statutes, often innocently and only because they are not familiar with the laws and regulations.
Certain medical transactions trigger a number of these statutes and may be violated without any intent on the part of the physician. 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 a medical practice, entering into an associate employment contract, or a commercial real estate transaction for buying, selling, or leasing office space for a medical practice.
