The health care industry is one of the fastest growing and most heavily regulated industries in the world. In the U.S. alone, it represents approximately 16 percent of the gross domestic product. The delivery of sophisticated, interdisciplinary legal services is more important than ever for health service providers, managed care organizations, technology companies and health care investors worldwide.
The lawyers in our Health Care Group are drawn from across our firm's platform, bringing unrivalled experience and a keen understanding of the sector's dynamics. Our global team combines specialized health law and industry experience with specific practice concentrations that allow us to provide corporate and transactional, regulatory, bankruptcy, litigation and investigatory, technology, labor, real estate, tax and intellectual property representation for clients across the industry. We advise investor-owned companies, not-for-profit organizations and government agencies in matters ranging from complex transactions, regulatory compliance, restructuring, and reimbursement to quality-of-care litigation and managed care disputes.
By combining an intimate knowledge of the health care industry with the full resources and depth of a global law firm, we act as a trusted advisor, partnering on the most important, complex and sensitive challenges facing health care organizations today.
