Health Law Practice

If you are interested in health law, you may engage in a broad range of both litigation and transactional lawyering. As a health law litigator, you might represent plaintiffs and defendants in malpractice actions or suits against pharmaceutical manufacturers (including class actions). You might also participate in administrative hearings involving disputes ranging from reimbursement rates to the medical necessity of clinical interventions, on behalf of health care insurers, providers, consumers, or the state and federal governments.  As a transactional health lawyer, you might advise and assist clients in structuring agreements, establishing policies and practices that minimize the risk of your clients violating legal standards. Or you might work with the legislative and executive branches of government, or interested lobbying or advocacy organizations around the promulgation and implementation of rules governing licensure, payment, quality of care, patient rights and access to services.
