Pioneers in health care law.
One of the first firms to establish a dedicated health care practice, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney has long been a recognized leader in health care legal services. Our group was ranked #1 in Pennsylvania by The Best Lawyers in America 2012; we've also been listed among America's Leading Business Lawyers, The Best Lawyers in America
®, Leading U.S. Healthcare Lawyers, BTI Client Service All-Stars, Pennsylvania Super Lawyers
® and Florida's Legal Elite.
Our team members understand the health care sector—many of us have professional degrees in health care disciplines, and we've also held senior agency and
congressional positions. Our experience gives
us a distinct advantage in dealing with the policies, practices, and procedures that govern the industry, and our extensive government relations practice means that our clients have a strong voice in Washington.
By focusing exclusively on health care law, our group is able to provide the kind of in-depth service our clients demand. We also work closely with other attorneys in the firm—litigators, real estate lawyers, bankruptcy lawyers, and the White Collar Defense Group—to ensure complete coverage of every client concern.
Service that spans the industry.
From transactional matters to regulatory concerns, our Health Care Group serves the needs of a wide variety of clients—health systems, private hospitals, oncology centers, behavioral health care providers, senior care businesses, insurers, research organizations, and more. Our legal experience and access to the latest government developments are the keys to our success.
Health Care Transactions
When two or more health care organizations conduct business, the legal issues increase in complexity. We've handled a wide variety of health care deals for many different types of institutional health care providers.
Our group primarily helps clients manage the transactional elements of the health care business. We deal with business entity formation, mergers and acquisitions, taxation and liability issues, and profit-sharing arrangements. We also offer advice on antitrust matters, corporate financing, and government contracts and procurement. We're extensively experienced in intellectual property issues related to health care.
Our group works with clients to establish and maintain compliance with all applicable regulatory standards. In particular, we help health care organizations deal with Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement issues, Stark law, and fraud and abuse cases, and whistleblower claims. Our attorneys also handle provider licensing matters and HIPAA concerns.
