Whether a doctor is the sole shareholder of a professional corporation or practices within a group practice, all healthcare businesses require strong operational contracts to mitigate liabilities. In a heavily litigious time, the days of establishing and maintaining business relationships based on a handshake are long gone.
At the Pacific Health Law Group, PC, we pride ourselves on working with our clients throughout the arc of their practice from formation to disposition. By maintaining a long-term relationship, we are able to assist them. After 10 years of practice in healthcare transactions, our firm has witnessed the good, bad, and ugly in practice transitions. At the Pacific Health Law Group, PC, our staff works exclusively on the legal needs of healthcare professionals, including helping doctors navigate the agreements and laws related to the acquisition or purchase of healthcare practices.
We understand that by doing our job right, we can minimize your liabilities and give you peace of mind. And if you have peace of mind, you can celebrate the purchase or sale of your practice instead of worrying about the liabilities associated with such a transition. This principle guides our client relationships and how we work as a firm with our doctors.
Why Hire a HealthCare Attorney to Assist You with Your Operational Issues?
A good business attorney can be a trusted counsel, adding value to the business by helping with strategic decisions as well as mitigate liabilities related to operational issues. A good healthcare attorney will also understand the nuances of a provider’s particular industry and leverage that knowledge in adding further value to the practice.
Unlike general business attorneys, our office focuses exclusively on the legal needs of healthcare professionals and understands the nuances of these issues as they relate to the practices of physicians, dentists, veterinarians, optometrists, and other healthcare providers. We strive to be industry leaders, continually writing about and lecturing on topics related to our clients’ healthcare practices. We are curious, consuming articles and books that help to strengthen our knowledge.
As a result, we provide specialized knowledge of health law issues that a general business attorney cannot. Whether it is complying with the particular regulators related to professional corporations, understanding what specific provisions to include in an associate agreement, or how to counsel a doctor on the proper methods to advertise her practice, our firm is experienced in the translation issues in healthcare practice that a general business attorney is not.
