For healthcare and life sciences companies, regulatory disputes with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and its operating divisions can present significant economic costs and reputational risks. Efficient resolutions of such disputes are always preferable and require an understanding of the law, the institutional relationships between the relevant HHS operating division and other parts of the Executive Branch and agency personnel.
