Krieg DeVault offers one of the most sophisticated groups devoted to health care in the country, and serves a full range of health care providers and provider organizations. Our lawyers have an absolute understanding of providers’ businesses and regulatory needs – often from their own experience as hospital administrators and directors, industry association leaders, government advisors, and health care practitioners – and have been instrumental in the development of public policies that benefit the health care sector. We ensure that hospitals, senior living facilities, physician groups, and similar organizations follow best practices for governance, operations, and compliance. Few law firms surpass our ability to resolve the regulatory and transactional issues involved with business combinations and market expansion, from risk assessment to staff relations to governmental approval.  We don’t just advise our clients on health care law; we use our industry knowledge to help them avoid problems, pursue opportunities, and better serve their patients.
