The members of the firm focus their practices on particular areas affecting clients. The firm is structured internally, however, so that clients are clients of the firm rather than of an individual. In practice, one member acts as account manager for each client but draws upon the special expertise of other members and associates as needed. The establishment of a hospital joint venture, for example, may require not only expertise in corporate law principles, but also an in-depth knowledge of reimbursement, tax, antitrust, certificate of need, and administrative law. The firm's team approach produces a final product that cannot be matched by any one person attempting to handle a multifaceted project alone.

Members and associates keep themselves abreast of legal, business, and practical and policy developments that may affect our clients. Whether it be a new statute, a proposed regulation, an important new court decision, or a significant business development, we will promptly inform the client of the action and its ramifications. Clients can rest assured that our knowledge is current and can plan accordingly.

The firm's financial arrangements with its clients vary. Most of our work is billed as fee-for-service on the basis of hourly rates, which differ depending on the experience and expertise of the attorney involved. However, just as our clients gradually shift to risk-sharing arrangements, so has the firm accepted risk-bearing fee structures. Members of the firm always are willing to discuss fees and are able to provide estimates in many cases.

The firm prides itself on being one of the few in the United States that has chosen to devote its entire legal practice to the sophisticated and complex legal issues facing participants in the health, education, and certain complementary sectors of the economy. It also prides itself in making a conscious and affirmative attempt to render an unusually personal and collegial form of service that is particularly tailored to the different needs and desires of individual clients, and to provide the highest quality of service in as efficient a manner as possible.

The firm's approach is informal but candid. Members and associates view themselves as part of the client's team to solve problems, rather than as disinterested consultants retained simply to tell a client yes or no. We seek not simply solutions for a client but the unique solution that best achieves the client's objective.
