The health care industry is one of the most closely regulated industries in the United States. Regulatory compliance encompasses all facets of legal advice, including transactional structuring and due diligence, operations, compliance plan implementation, self-disclosure and defense. To stay ahead of emerging regulations and minimize the risks associated with non-compliance, clients need legal counsel well versed in existing laws and with a finger on the pulse of new legal and regulatory developments.
The health law team at McDermott includes highly experienced regulatory lawyers in all key areas of health care. Our collective experience is expansive and covers such diverse areas as fraud and abuse, anti-kickback and self-referral laws, False Claims Act defense, reimbursement counseling, patient data privacy under HIPAA and the HITECH Act, Affordable Care Act and other health reform initiatives, clinical and database research, medical device and drug product regulation, and tax issues facing for-profit and not-for-profit entities.
Clients benefit from our ability to provide a “real world approach” derived from a team that includes former prosecutors and OIG officials, Health and Human Services and FDA regulators, and compliance specialists with centuries of combined experience. Similarly, our client base extends across all facets of the health care industry, including Fortune 500 companies, private equity firms, nonprofit institutions, hospitals and integrated delivery systems, health technology companies, ancillary and subacute providers, health plans, medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers, teaching and research institutions, medical groups, group purchasing organizations and trade associations.
