HEALTH LAW

 

Health care professionals and practice entities face unusual challenges due to the fact that they are caught between the competing requirements of government regulation and insurer review and oversight. The Nissenbaum Law Group has experience serving the unique needs of the healthcare community.

Health law in the Age of the Coronavirus

It is an understatement to say that the layers of complication involved in health law have increased exponentially. There have been critical developments in such areas as telemedicine and the insurability of remote health services, liability for inadequate personal protective equipment (PPE) and untested and unproven treatment modalities and the impact of all this on the more routine challenges involving managed care, malpractice liability, restrictive covenants, entity formation, HIPAA compliance, Stark I, II and III and the Patients’ Bill of Rights.

The Nissenbaum Law Group stands ready to take on the challenge of representing clients under these circumstances. The firm has represented physicians, physician groups, managed care entities and hospitals in a wide range of healthcare-related legal matters.

The firm leverages its experience in corporate, litigation, technology and privacy law to add depth to its range of health law services. The firm’s Managing Principal, Gary D. Nissenbaum, Esq., has been published in the area of health law and provided a number of presentations regarding that topic, including a continuing legal education seminar for attorneys.

In addition to representing medical entities and individual healthcare providers, the firm also has experience advising clients who own alternative medicine and psychotherapy practices. In addition, the firm has represented medical professionals who run consumer-related healthcare websites for the public at large.

 

The firm’s healthcare practice includes the following:

  • Corporate formalities including operating agreements, meeting resolutions and corporate bylaws;
  • Purchase or sale of a medical practice;
  • Employment or severance agreements for physicians and other medical professionals;
  • Regulatory issues concerning the Board of Psychology and Board of Medical Examiners;
