About our Johnson City, TN: office

Hancock, Daniel & Johnson, P.C., (HDJ) provides assistance and guidance to healthcare providers in virtually all legal matters affecting the healthcare industry.

Generally, these include corporate, administrative, and transactional matters; litigation; and government relations. Our lawyers have diverse backgrounds in varying specialties and have provided legal advice to healthcare providers for decades. HDJ is not only the largest Virginia law firm with a primary focus on the needs of the healthcare industry but it is also one of the largest healthcare firms nationwide.

Our Healthcare team services the needs of clients within numerous areas of law, including physician contracting; fraud and abuse; Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement; corporate compliance; tax-exempt status and corporate finance; managed care; antitrust; mergers, joint ventures, and other acquisitions; real estate transactions; and general corporate law issues.

Our Administrative & COPN/Licensure team provides assistance with legal issues involving credentialing, peer review, certificates of need, medical staff, licensing, administrative compliance and appeals, as well as other administrative matters affecting healthcare providers.

Our Litigation team protects the interests of healthcare providers in malpractice cases and represents healthcare providers before governmental professional boards.

Many of our clients request our firm's assistance in representing their interests when new legislation is debated by the Virginia General Assembly. HDJ's government relations team provides comprehensive lobbying assistance as valued advocates for healthcare groups and other organizations on an array of issues.

Our Labor and Employment team provides a wide range of services to employers including consultation on day-to-day employment issues, defense and litigation of employment claims, liability and compliance assessments, policy and procedure development and review, internal investigations, and training and education programs.

Our healthcare clients increasingly look to us for comprehensive legal assistance, and our aim is simple: as a business-oriented firm, we strive to develop practical solutions to our healthcare clients' legal needs in a timely and cost-effective manner.

HDJ's Governmental Affairs Group is one of the premier government relations and lobbying leaders in Virginia.

A constant governmental relations presence at the Virginia General Assembly is essential to protecting the interests of your business from adverse or ill intended legislative initiatives. When you retain HDJ experts in government relations, you are, in essence, acquiring their credibility to advocate for you.

The second Wednesday of each January marks the convening of the Virginia General Assembly. For the following forty-five or sixty days-depending on the year-legislation is debated, passed, delayed, or defeated. An increasing number of businesses and associations realize the value of having an advocate at the General Assembly to protect their interests.

W. Scott Johnson leads the government relations team at Hancock, Daniel, Johnson & Nagle. Mr. Johnson has been involved with the Virginia General Assembly since 1986. He has repeatedly been selected by his peers as a Legal Elite in the specialty of governmental relations by Virginia Business magazine. Mr. Johnson has experience in advocating positions on behalf of our clients at the General Assembly involving the following issues: tort reform, energy, healthcare, medical malpractice litigation, IT, scope of practice, business litigation, renewable resources, insurance regulatory oversight, taxes, business organizational structures, workers' compensation, professional liability, e-commerce, Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA), alcohol and beverage control, wetlands protection, forestry, forest products, agriculture, environmental protection, title protection for professionals, certificate of public need, and budget amendments.

Gerald C. Canaan, II, is a director at HDJ and also a key leader of the government relations team. He advocates for issues affecting businesses, professional associations, and healthcare clients. He has recently advocated in the areas of professional liability, medical malpractice litigation, tort reform, scope of practice, business licensing, horse racing and related wagering, agriculture, concrete construction, administrative law, and regulatory interpretations.

Our government relations team is managed by Tyler S. Cox, a veteran of the political process having worked for the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association and managing their political action committee HOSPAC. We are also supported by an in depth support staff. This strength enables us to execute quickly, and keep our clients constantly up to date.

During each General Assembly session, our government relations team can be found at the state capitol every day; however, advancing our clients' positions begins long before the start of the legislative session. Our team interacts and maintains close relationships with Virginia's 140 legislators throughout the year. This dedication and constant communication have produced resounding results for our clients over the years.

Team members are routinely asked by businesses, clients, client organizations and civic and business groups to provide legislative updates on recently enacted legislation.

Representative governmental relations clients include The Medical Society of Virginia, Amgen, International Paper, IBM, HCA Healthcare Corporation, Community Health Systems, Liberty Healthcare, The Virginia Harness Horse Association, Comcast, Community Loans of America, Allergan, Virginia Masonry Association, and Merchants Express Money Order Company, and a number of other businesses and associations.
