KJK’s Healthcare Practice Group understands the challenges facing providers, suppliers, and insurers in the highly-regulated and constantly changing healthcare industry. Our team employs a personalized, creative problem-solving approach.
We provide advice to all types of healthcare entities, including hospitals; physicians and other individual providers; free-standing providers such as surgery centers; home health organizations; facilities meeting the needs of aging adults; businesses that supply healthcare equipment and technology; and health insurance and managed care companies.
We assist our healthcare clients in a wide range of issues from start-up (choosing the best business structure, creating new ventures, and assisting in securing capital) to operations (governance, employment, intellectual property, patient care issues, contracting and regulatory issues), to termination and other changes in structure (merger and acquisitions, divestitures and bankruptcy). Our litigation team also stands ready to meet clients’ needs when necessary.
We have experience as counsel inside hospitals, payers and other healthcare businesses so we understand firsthand the constraints placed on our clients for time, efficiency and resources.
Our attorneys are actively involved in healthcare and other specialty legal associations and regularly speak and write on issues of importance in the industry.
