Practice/Industry Group Overview
The rapidly changing arena of health law and regulation demands knowledgeable and creative representation. The attorneys in Obermayer's Health Care Practice have diverse experience and a demonstrated record of success in providing strategic guidance and technical support to clients. We provide the full range of health care representation to a wide spectrum of clients, from hospitals, nursing homes and physician groups, to utilization review companies, independent medical examination providers and durable medical equipment suppliers.
Our attorneys have been involved in a broad spectrum of health care law-related tasks, from network development, and managed care and provider contracting, to the financing of health care projects and transactional matters including mergers, joint ventures, sales of assets, affiliations and strategic alliances.
Obermayer is far and away the leading representative in Pennsylvania of units of government engaged in risk contracting with private providers, involving some of the most innovative managed care contracts in the nation.
In addition, Obermayer's traditional strengths in medical malpractice defense, tax planning, asset protection, environmental, and employment, labor relations, ERISA, and workers compensation counseling complement our health law experience and often are relevant to our health care clients.
Our health care lawyers know not only the law, but also the unique business and complex policy considerations behind the law, and the dynamic and diverse changes continually impacting health care law. The firm's strong public sector ties enable us to make effective contacts on regulatory and licensure matters for our health care clients.
