Krieg DeVault is uniquely qualified to work with you on orthopedic practice issues, including orthopedic hospitals, orthopedic urgent care centers, and orthopedic surgical centers.

We have represented some of the country's largest orthopedic providers on legal, operational, and strategic challenges. More than just a legal solutions provider, we are "in the trenches" with our orthopedic clients. We address legal needs with practical solutions backed by years of orthopedic-specific experience. There are few issues we have no handled, and we often work seamlessly with a client's existing legal team, where we provide targeted advice on issues where we have more experience.

Representative matters include:

  • Operational issues of physician-owned orthopedic hospitals
  • Equity buy-in and sales of orthopedic hospitals, practices, surgery centers, and urgent care centers
  • Regulatory compliance of orthopedic compensation plans
  • Professional service arrangements with hospitals for call coverage, trauma, and other services
  • Conflict of interest policies for outside vendor arrangements
  • Alternative payment models with payors and health systems
  • Orthopedic physician recruitment and employment, including non-compete issues
  • Orthopedic practice acquisitions and mergers
  • Orthopedic private equity considerations
  • Real estate development and sales
  • Stark and Anti-Kickback issues
  • HIPAA and HITECH issues
  • Compliance program development, implementation, and training
  • Government investigations, audits, and enforecement actions
