Health Care

Our focus is on helping health care providers solve their legal issues while minimizing the legal risks that arise in the health care business environment. The lawyers in W+L’s Health Care Practice Area offer essential support to clients in matters involving the business and regulatory aspects of health care delivery. We help these clients navigate the minefield of health care compliance issues such as Stark Law, fraud and abuse law, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

We represent the full spectrum of health care providers — including physicians, physician practices, hospitals, pharmacies, home health providers, and long-term care providers. Orly Rumberg, chair of W+L’s Health Care Practice, has over 25 years of experience representing health care providers. And her practice focuses exclusively on their business interests.

Our specific areas of focus include:

  • Business Formation
  • Compliance Issues
  • Employment Agreements
  • Risk Management
  • Fraud and Abuse Law
  • Stark Law
  • Medicare/Medicaid Regulation
