Practice/Industry Group Overview
Historically, the practice has involved medical malpractice litigation and related healthcare law. While this area of practice has grown steadily with the growth of the firm, today RMKB represents health care providers of all kinds, including physicians, hospitals, clinics, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and other allied healthcare practitioners in corporate and transactional matters as well as litigation.
RMKB is particularly well-suited to assist providers and health plans to deal with the increasingly complex issues in healthcare law including:
- Medical Malpractice
- Managed Care
- Wrongful Termination
- Staff Privileges
The firm has attorneys with extensive experience in handling a wide variety of medical/dental malpractice, managed care and healthcare issues involving litigation and counseling. The firm utilizes specially trained Registered Nurses when appropriate to increase the efficient and cost-effective handling of a case.
RMKB maintains computerized data banks for various related subjects such as expert witnesses, jury verdict results and a healthcare law and medical library in each of its offices. We have computer terminals in each office with access to Lexis and Westlaw, Medline, and the National Library of Medicine. This allows the firm to access medical literature quickly, efficiently and inexpensively.
The members of the healthcare department frequently lecture on healthcare issues and regularly attend continuing education courses on medical issues within and outside the firm.
