Health Care Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Effective litigation can cap risks, contain costs, and make intelligent use of client and attorney time. When disputes arise, our health care attorneys and litigators work closely to achieve the results that further our clients' business objectives. Our litigators have decades of experience representing companies in the health care industry. We have represented clients in jurisdictions throughout the United States and in every aspect of litigation and dispute resolution – from jury trials and bench proceedings, to appellate and Supreme Court arguments. In situations where alternative dispute resolution or settlement negotiations are the best option, we draw on our extensive skills in arbitration, mediation, and negotiation.
We regularly defend employers in the health care industry against a range of employment-related claims, including discrimination, wage-and-hour and contract disputes. We represent public and private companies and individuals facing civil, criminal, and regulatory investigations and law enforcement actions, and in proceedings before the Department of Justice, U.S. Attorneys' Offices, the Internal Revenue Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and state health departments.
Much Shelist also has a highly sophisticated policyholders' insurance coverage practice, which provides comprehensive insurance-coverage and risk management counseling and includes experienced trial lawyers committed to protecting the rights of businesses and other policyholders in the health care industry.
