Healthcare Industry Litigation

Healthcare is among the fastest growing industries in the United States, and while advancements in treatments create new opportunities every day, growth does not come without challenges—economic stresses, increased scrutiny, and government regulation have increased the risks facing healthcare providers. Failure to navigate the risks properly can result in disruptive disputes and litigation. BHBC attorneys understand the challenges faced by businesses in the regulated healthcare industry and know how to get clients back to business fast.

Our considerable knowledge of the healthcare industry is the cornerstone of BHBC’s healthcare industry litigation practice. Our attorneys support their clients in courts, arbitration, mediation, and administrative proceedings by combining in-depth experience in healthcare matters with litigation skills developed in trials and hearings. BHBC attorneys are also skilled at responding to government investigations and negotiating settlements. We provide comprehensive litigation services for any disputed matter and strive to achieve the results for our clients that make sense in the context of the industry and the client’s role in the healthcare environment.

BHBC healthcare litigation attorneys serve a wide variety of providers, including doctors, hospitals, surgery centers, and others. We defend healthcare providers in regulatory actions arising out of the various regulatory and statutory restrictions placed on those in the industry.

We also represent physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals and hospitals in disputes regarding staff privileges, misconduct, credentialing, employment, contractual arrangements, compensation, and problems arising from partnerships and joint ventures. These matters typically involve complex ongoing relationships requiring firm but sophisticated handling of the issue in dispute to seek a creative solution. Our healthcare litigation team also includes employment and benefits litigators experienced in addressing claims of discrimination, ERISA violations, and wrongful termination.
