Health Care Law
In a heavily regulated and rapidly changing healthcare industry, hospitals, and medical professionals need knowledgeable, experienced legal counsel to guide them through the maze of government regulations. They need strong advocates to negotiate corporate transactions, buy/sell agreements, affiliations and contracts. In Western Kansas, they find what they need in the health care law attorneys at Kennedy Berkley.
Our practice encompasses representation in transactional and regulatory matters, litigation, board training and corporate counseling. We understand the industry, the laws and the regulatory bodies that govern them. Our healthcare team includes attorneys who have worked within healthcare facilities, government agencies, and employers providing healthcare coverage. They possess a solid working knowledge of the interactions between the healthcare sector and the laws regulating the marketplace.
We help providers – including hospitals, physicians and other healthcare professionals, physician groups, treatment centers and managed care organizations of every type – meet their strategic goals. Our attorneys provide guidance on complex transactions including corporate structure and reorganization, mergers and acquisitions, financing and joint ventures. We help clients deal with government regulations such as federal and state fraud and abuse laws, anti-kickback laws, self-referral laws and professional practice laws.
Our healthcare clients benefit from the wide range of experience throughout the firm. In connection with a particular transaction, our attorneys may consult with their colleagues who have experience in corporate and finance, land use, tax, real estate, litigation and employment law to ensure thorough consideration of all relevant issues.
