The health care industry is one of the largest and most heavily regulated industries in the country. From tax-exempt requirements, to anti-kickback compliance and malpractice and licensure issues, health care providers face a myriad of regulatory and business concerns on an everyday basis. Eastman & Smith uses a team approach that draws attorneys from a cross section of practice groups to provide focused and efficient assistance on each discrete matter.
We handle transactions, reimbursement issues and business litigation matters for our health care clients. We also advise on regulatory compliance involving anti-kickback and physician self-referral laws as well as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). For physicians and hospitals facing negligence claims, Eastman & Smith has the largest medical malpractice defense group in Northwest Ohio.
