Los Angeles Healthcare Litigation Attorney
Legal disputes in the healthcare sphere can take a wide range of forms. Your healthcare practice may face partnership disputes, employment contract disputes, contentions over reimbursement, lawsuits by or against your competitors or vendors, or other suits brought by patients against your practice. While there are commonalities among all litigation, healthcare law carries its own unique complexities. If you are facing a legal dispute in the healthcare arena, it is vital that you retain not only an experienced litigator but also someone with an intimate knowledge of the healthcare industry, the business of healthcare, and California healthcare law.

What Makes Healthcare Litigation Different?
Litigating in the healthcare sphere involves dealing with all of the normal, complex aspects of lawsuits, such as discovery, while maintaining compliance with the various laws applicable only to the healthcare industry. Providing documents in discovery must be done without violating patient privacy protections under HIPAA, for example. Moreover, any statements made in court documents must take care to avoid suggesting that your healthcare practice violated anti-kickback rules, Medicare fraud laws, or any other rules or regulations. This can be a fine line to walk when engaged in a heated dispute with an employee, contractor, or other adversary.
