Venable has one of the leading healthcare practices in the United States. Our nationally ranked practice and many of its attorneys have been recognized as leaders in the field by Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business; Best Lawyers in America; and Nightingale's Healthcare News. With more than 40 years of experience and 50 attorneys with comprehensive healthcare and regulatory experience, we have been trusted advisors to healthcare professionals adapting to the new regulatory landscape.
We routinely represent hospitals and hospital systems, insurance companies, physicians, physician groups, and continuing care facilities, as well as nonprofit organizations and academic teaching hospitals and systems. We also represent companies that provide services to those in the healthcare industry, such as management companies, auditors, information technology vendors, and other service providers.
Our broad experience in healthcare transactional work has positioned us at the forefront of several significant transactions in recent years, and we have handled the full range of transactional matters, including hospital and health system mergers and acquisitions, restructuring and reorganizations, financings of all types, joint venture transactions, and affiliation transactions. We are frequently called upon to assist our clients with issues that arise in the course of business transactions, including provider, managed care, and commercial contracting; due diligence; negotiations; executive and workforce employment issues; risk assessment; succession; risk and insurance analysis and advice; and addressing regulatory compliance issues, such as antitrust, HIPAA compliance, Medicare and Medicaid audits, investigations, and certification, Stark and anti-kickback issues, and licensing and accreditation.
Venable attorneys share a wealth of experience in helping businesses thrive in a highly regulated environment. As a firm headquartered in Washington, DC, we have a large number of attorneys who are former lawmakers and regulators; they bring the value of this significant regulatory experience together with our deep bench in business transactions. Operating at the nexus of the private and public sectors, our team is able to design effective strategies and solutions and advise our clients in a way that ensures the client remains a viable business while maintaining regulatory compliance and providing quality healthcare services.
