PDFEmailPrint

The health care industry is dynamic and ever changing, requiring experienced legal counsel who understands the industry and the client’s business needs. Krieg DeVault’s Health Care Practice is well-respected on local, state and national levels, and our firm’s Health Care Litigation team is an integral part of that practice. We have a long history of advocating for health care providers on a broad range of legal issues impacting their services and operations.

The Krieg DeVault Difference

Our firm brings a true team approach to any health care litigation matter. This involves the strategic collaboration of our seasoned health care lawyers and our formidable litigators, who together share a sophisticated grasp of the legal landscape and can offer the necessary depth and resources to take on even the most complex of cases. Our bench strength also includes former hospital system in-house counsel, former agency executives, a former U.S. Attorney, and health care consultants well-equipped to address the diverse challenges those in the health care industry face. This combination of skill sets, coupled with our collective knowledge of the substantive law and regulations, enables us to pursue optimal outcomes for our clients and makes Krieg DeVault a go-to litigation firm for health care providers of all sizes.

The Work We Do

We represent individual physicians, physician groups, ambulatory surgery centers, long-term care and managed care facilities, not-for-profit organizations, hospital and health care systems, pharmacy and biotech companies, and other medical and health-related service providers in a wide variety of cases involving:
 

  • Health care fraud and abuse claims
  • Covenants not to compete
  • Shareholder actions and other corporate governance disputes
  • Partnership, joint venture and strategic alliance disputes
  • Disputes in the context of mergers, acquisitions and other business transactions
  • Breach of contract and other commercial disputes
  • Payor-provider disputes
  • Professional licensing, credentialing and staff privilege matters
  • Medical staffing disputes and other employment-related matters


In addition, we recognize and are at the forefront of the regulatory minefields endemic to the health care industry and help clients navigate through government investigations, enforcement proceedings, and lawsuits that can have “bet-the-business” implications for their services and operations. We counsel and defend health care providers regarding:
 

  • False Claims Act violations and whistleblower allegations
  • Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute violations
  • HIPAA and HITECH violations and breach of privacy issues
  • Qui tam litigation and Corporate Integrity Agreement Compliance
  • Medicaid/Medicare regulatory compliance and reimbursement issues
  • Telephone Consumer Protection Act violations
  • Antitrust issues

Our Health Care Litigation team is experienced in effectively and efficiently resolving disputes through arbitration, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution, including the Dispute Resolution Service of the American Health Lawyers Association.
